Our son came home today telling us he was invited to his friends(twins)birthday party on Sunday! What? This Sunday?? And we looked at the invitiation yup! I think thats the strangest thing ever! And our son is disappointed b/c we told him he may not go? We planned on BBQing and grandma was coming by!

I know when my oldest was younger his birthday sometimes fell on Memorial day weekend! And let me tell you,it was hard to get people to come! So I can only imagine in Easter Sunday? So is this the normal? Birthday parties on holidays?

*edited*I was just reading the back of the invitation and activity listed was Easter egg hunt! My son still can't make it do our own stuff! Oh well I hope those kids have a good bday?

Most time people would do it the day or weekend before. My birthday is July 4th so sometimes to make sure I had more kids than adults at my party she would have the weekend before. It is strange to have a party and expect people to come on a holiday. That is usually the only time some family gets together.

Lol they weren't thinking...or maybe they were.... If you want a smaller party without disappointing the kid, set it on a day you KNOW everybody most likely will be doing something. Hmm...taking notes lol.

Maybe they don't celebrate Easter. So it didn't really occur to then. IDK. But this is exactly why I had my baby girls party last weekend. Her bday is actually today, but I have a lot of out of town family and friends who would not have made it, had I done it this weekend, to close too Easter.

I, personally, would not have my sons bday on such a day, even if it is his actual birthday (unless I planned on having two. One for family because chances are they would/will come more likely then a friend and the other on a different day for his friends)

you run the risk of people not showing up if you plan on a holiday.

This past wednesday we had a dinner at Red Robbin for my 3yr old, it was just family. But next month we are having a party at a kids gym.

When my oldest turned 3, her birthday fell on Easter. We had a party on Easter. It's usually a handful of us anyway when we do parties, so it was no problem for them to join us.

My parents through parties for me as a  kid on Easter weekend and yes some people had plans sometimes so I wouldn't suggestion anyone putting their kid through that.

My sister had a surprise baby shower for me on Easter, I was surprised at the turn out, there was people there then I inticipated. I planned a his and hers shower for the following weekend following weekend because I thought everyone would be busy on Easter. Byt I guess it depends on how well you know the people your inviting and the time of the function.
