Advent Calendar Dec 15, The Holiday Happenings
Today's writing prompt was Birthdays, Anniversaries and other occasions...Do they get overshadowed by Christmas. And then to shine a spotlight on the December people. I have to say we really don't have a Christmas baby in the family. We have a Thanksgiving baby and so I can say that every 7 years, his birthday again falls on Thanksgiving and then we have to think of how to make the birthday a little special.
Other than that we reserve the month for that very special Birthday on Christmas which we all celebrate. I think it is such a glorious time and I am happy that for us, that is the focus, the birth of our Savior.
Addendum: You know as I was reading through Google reader the other items from other Genealbloggers, I noted that they wrote about their ancestors with Dec. birthdays. I should have done that too. Now, I can only add that my grandmother was born on Dec. 20, 1899. I don't know really how she celebrated it, because during her life and mine - she was in Germany and I was in Minnesota. She did come to America for 6 months. That was the only time that I remember seeing her. And we obviously were together at that time (Photo) but I can't remember her birthday. If there were pictures of it, I am also not sure.
