Remembering Birthdays

At around 3.30pm today, one of my Indian colleagues came by my seat area to wish my new Indian seat mate (who is barely a week old in the company) a happy birthday. To my surprise I turned to him and said ÔÇÿyou have sat next to me all day and I didnÔÇÖt know itÔÇÖs your
birthday?, he smiled and said ÔÇÿeven me, I forgot itÔÇÖs my birthdayÔÇÖ

How do people forget their birthdays? I canÔÇÖt seem to get it!

Birthdays 1

According to Wikipedia, birthday is described as follows:

“A birthday is an occasion when a person or institution celebrates the anniversary of their birth. Birthdays are celebrated in numerous cultures, often with a gift or party.

Note the distinction between birthday and birth date: the former occurs each year (e.g. December 18), while the latter is the exact date a person was born (e.g., December 18, 1998).”

I consider birthdays very special. For me, I start counting down to my birthday even months before the day, the specialty and uniqueness of the day cannot possibly make me forget it.

I suppose our interests differ.

But then try not to forget your next birthday.

    You’re so awesome! I do not believe I’ve truly read anything like that before.

    So great to discover someone with some genuine thoughts on this
    issue. Seriously.. thanks for starting this up. This website is something
    that is needed on the internet, someone with some originality!
