    14 Things All Holiday Babies Know To Be True

    Oh, the agony of a Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year's/etc. birthday.

    1. If your birthday is on a famous birthday holiday, it's never just about *you.*

    President's Day not quite as severe.

    2. And if your birthday is on Christmas Day, you might as well be invisible.

    Whether you celebrate Christmas yourself or not. It's EVERYWHERE.

    3. You've tried to get people you know to modify their holidays (just a little!!!!) to accommodate your birthday.

    OK it'll be "Thanksgiving" ... but with pizza and birthday cake.

    4. If you express any resentment toward sharing celebrations with the holidays, you feel like a total monster.

    "What if this year ... Halloween was JUST my birthday. Haha jk. :("

    5. Your birthday doesn't have streamers and balloons, it has tinsel and lights and wreaths.

    (Or fake cobwebs! Or decorative gourds.)

    6. People with non-holiday birthdays just don't understand — but neither can you explain it.

    "It's just ... BAD."

    7. When you find someone else with a birthday near yours, they feel like a ~kindred spirit~.

    Let's both make this about US.

    8. Your plans are often thwarted because places are closed for the holidays.

    Well FINE, I guess I'll just drink a bottle of wine by myself.

    9. On occasion, you've tried to trick yourself into thinking thousands of people are actually ALL celebrating YOUR birthday.

    Oh, Charlie Brown Christmas? That film is about my birth.

    10. You relate deeply to Fauna trying to keep that damn cake up in Sleeping Beauty.

    It's a metaphor FOR YOUR LIFE.

    11. When people DO make a big deal out of your birthday, you're so shocked you don't know how to handle it.

    Disney / Via

    Wha— what IS THIS???

    12. And then there's the present thing.

    NBC / Via

    Which totally TOTALLY mattered more when you were a kid and bratty teen and not at ALL now that you are a mature and selfless adult. Not even a little does it bother you, that you get combination holiday/birthday presents. At all.

    13. But for the most part, you've learned to accept your holiday birthday, and celebrate in your own way.

    What better day to have just for yourself?

    14. Plus, there's one major benefit to a holiday birthday: feasting.

    Disney / Via

    It's a holiday, but it's also my birthday. I get as many desserts as I want.
