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.
