OK my daughter is turning 3 this year and her birthday is on Christmas Day, Dec. 25. We have been racking our brains on how to make her birthdays extra special for her. How do you make it extra special when every one gets gifts on this day? We were thinking of giving her a half year birthday (like Christmas in July) but to me that just does not seem to help make her actual birthday special! IDEAS PLEASE!
My MIL has her birthday on Christmas. It's a pain in the butt. If you can get in the tradition of having her birthday on a different day, then it will be easier each year. I also like the idea of having a half-birthday. She's only 3. She will like whatever you do and follow whatever tradition you set.

My DD's birthdays are 2 weeks apart so we have one bday party. But to make the actual day of their Bday special I make pink Bday pancakes. Pancakes dyed pink. Whipped cream up the sides. and a candle on top. We sing happy birthday and I take pictures (& video till that broke). I have always been broke that time of year too. because my DH birthday is smack between theirs...but maybe a small gift and a call from the grandparents would round it out and hold you over till June. I personally LOVE the half year idea!
