Trick or Treat? You Decide.




Tomorrow is one of my favorite days of the year. To begin with, its Halloween and that opens the way for so much fun.  In my house, Halloween has another special meaning, though. My good hubby-buddy will be celebrating another birthday. This makes this particular holiday quite special to all of us.
I've often wondered if he ever felt left out because of the holidays, but when I watch him handing out candy and visiting with all the trick or treaters, my heart tells me that this is what he lives for. Does he feel that his birthday is special? I think he does. He told me one time that he loves the fact that the whole nation celebrates his birthday by visiting each other in full-costume.

Do you share your birthday with a holiday? How do you feel about it? Is is something you wish were different? Do you enjoy it? I'd love to hear your feelings about something that most of us will never comprehend, first-hand.

My husband's birthday is right after Christmas and his dad's birthday is right after New Years. They were traditionally robbed of separate presents! Can you imagine? I put a stop to that...

Hi again, I looked for an email address and couldn't find one for you, so I'm going to leave this in comments. I hope you don't mind.

I know how busy you are, but I’m hoping I can count on you to help me get the word out!

I’m hosting another giveaway to kick-off the holiday shopping season. The prize is a $75 gift certificate to Amazon.com. The shopping possibilities are endless!

The contest will be posted on my blog Tuesday morning, November 3rd . Bloggers and non-bloggers alike can enter ONCE between Tuesday and Friday the 6th at midnight.

Would you please post about it? Thanks for considering….

My grandmother-in-law has her birthday on Christmas day. And HATES it. She has always complained that no one remembers it's her birthday because it is Christmas day. So, we always have to remember to wish her Happy Birthday first and then Merry Christmas. :-) My father-in-law (deceased) birthday was on Christmas Eve. I actually don't know how he felt. I think he kinda liked it, because he got to see all his family on his birthday/Christmas Eve. We were always careful to get him two gifts, one Christmas and one birthday.

Hi PJ,
I am so proud of you for making sure that your husband and his dad had their gift options restored. I'm sure they both appreciated it, too.
Thank you for including me in your plans for a giveaway. I love being able to let people know about giveaways. Of course, I am more than happy to help spread the word. It is 1:12 AM, now, so I will wait a little while before posting. I hope that is what you meant. Good luck with your giveaway. Am I allowed to enter?

Hi Angelia,
I can understand your gramma's feelings. By your description, I can just almost invision your gramma's cute little 'Attitude' about the whole thing.
Two of my grandies have birthdays just before Christmas and we are always very careful to keep their birthdays separate from the holiday celebrations. Another grandie has a birthday just before Valentine's Day and one of my girls has her birthday ON Valentine's Day. One of my boys was born on Father's Day and I was my mother's birthday present. For the most part, everyone in my family seems to be thrilled by that particular set of circumstances. 'Course the grandies are all still small enough that they haven't really formed an opinion of it, one way or the other, yet. ~ Yaya
