    21 Reasons Winter Birthdays Are The Absolute Best

    Eat snow, summer babies.

    We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community why they love having a winter birthday. Here are the brilliant results.

    1. If you don't get what you want for your birthday, you can request it for Christmas. And vice versa.

    2. You learn how dedicated your friends are, because they'll celebrate with you in any weather conditions.

    3. Having a day dedicated entirely to you is the perfect distraction from the winter weather.

    4. You can go skiing, sledding, and snow tubing to celebrate.

    5. Unlike kids with summer birthdays, you got cupcakes or other treats at school.

    6. You're already in a festive spirit because of all the winter holidays.

    7. And since your special day is so close to the holidays, it feels like the gifts don't stop coming.

    8. Your friends look forward to celebrating, because there are usually less parties once it gets cold outside.

    9. Because the weather tends to be crappy, you plan more creative indoor celebrations.

    10. People are on break for the holidays, so they have few excuses to not celebrate with you.

    11. But if they can't make it on your actual birthday, you're almost guaranteed to see them at a holiday party anyway.

    12. You can request special desserts to be made and brought to holiday parties just for you. That you don't have to share.

    13. And you don't second-guess eating more dessert than usual, because everyone's in celebration mode anyway.

    14. If your birthday is over holiday break, you were guaranteed to have no school as a kid.

    15. And if you work, you can take time off without feeling guilty.

    16. If your birthday isn't during break, you still have the brilliant possibility of a snow day.

    17. You don't experience the post-holiday blues, because there's an entire celebration for you on the way.

    18. If you're not one for lavish parties, you don't feel guilty relaxing at home. Especially if you've already met your party-quota from the holidays.

    19. You don't feel pressured to dress up when celebrating, since it's so cold.

    20. You get to combine holiday sales with birthday discounts for extra-inexpensive gifts for yourself.

    21. And most importantly, if you love winter and snow, there is extra magic in the air on your birthday.
