I have done both. I don't mind working even on a week day as long as my work day is just that-a day time thing. I have worked evening & nights on my b'day & in general while working those shifts for me sucks! I've missed her b'day,my b'day & when he was alive his b'day! When I had to work a night or eveing shift(I was an RN in a psyche ward) we would put off celebrating til I had off.

Aww that sucks. Happy Bitthday.

Quoting jglasser7682:

I have in the past, several times.

I work from home now so I can take off whenever I want to.

Tomorrow is my birthday (I'll be 32) and I actually would have worked but I have a damn abscessed tooth that's sooooo effin painful, so I'll probably end up being in bed most of the day tomorrow (and all weekend).

I should say I always took my vacations the week of birthday (and the other one at Christmas, worked well because I'm a July baby)

Quoting cuauhtemocsmom: A week? That is super sweet!!

Quoting pristine729: I always took the week of my birthday off! Lol.

But things are different this year and I am working for the first time ever on my 33 birthday next month.

(funny you posted this because I was just telling my friend, lol)

If I'm breathing that day, I'm working.  I still love my birthday but fact is, if work needs done it's gettin' done no matter what day.

I've never asked to be off work on my birthday.

I usually work on my birthday, when it falls on a weekday. Years ago, before kids, I took off maybe once or twice for my birthday, but not anymore.
But this year, my birthday was on Father's day, so my big day wasn't about me.

Generally, it depends on what day of the week it falls on.
