We never miss or postpone birthdays at our house! I'd celebrate with co-workers during the day but would definitely look forward to a cozy family dinner that evening...the weekend is another story!!

Of all the years I worked, I never took my birthday off. But, I know many people do to celebrate. Thanks for letting all of us celebrate with you!!

With my birthday close to Christmas...I like to try to take the day off to play! I am having a hard time getting my basement cleaned today...wonder why LOL!

Jennifer said...

I'm a stay-at-home-mum, so I hang out at home with my adorable "co-worker". (My 4 year old son.)

We celebrate in the evening with a home-cooked meal or a special restaurant treat.

No special arrangements but most often, my co-workers surprise me with celebrations and goodies.

Well, I don't work...so I just celebrate with friends when all my worker bee buddies are available. It doesn't have to be on my birthday.....it's always fun, no matter when!

Bev M said...

We celebrate birthdays on the actual day at our house...no matter what is going on. We may do more stuff on the weekend, but there is always cake and presents on the real day.

Connie said...

I never take my b-day off - we sometimes will celebrate on the weekend though.

PamS said...

I never took the day off...it is much more fun waiting for everyone else to be off work and help me celebrate.

I would move my Birthday to the weekend to celebrate with family, but would probably get some cards from co-workers on my actual work day.

If it's a workday for me, I work without telling anybody it's my birthday. I ignore it when I'm at work. When I get home, my hubby usually takes me out to dinner.
This year, for a change, I am actually taking a week off that happens to include my birthday. Didn't really plan it for that reason, it just happened to fall that way. My birthday is the day before St. Patrick's Day, so it's coming up pretty soon!

kimsparks636 said...

If it falls on a friday, then it's a 3 day weekend for sure! Otherwise we wait until the weekend.

Kathy W said...

Being a teacher with a birthday in July, I usually have it off. In years past when I had another job, I always went to work and kept my birthday a secret.

pattyo said...

I used to take the day off but have worked it the last few years. We usually have a cake at work and then I get another one at home. We usually go out to eat on the weekend.

I'd celebrate with coworkers that day, and family that night or over the weekend!

We celebrate coworkers' birthdays at work, we celebrate birthdays on the exact day with immediate family, and then again on the weekend with whatever extended family can get together!

Cindee Stacey said...

I'm a SAHM now, but when I was working outside the home, I still worked & my co-workers would celebrate with me & then we usually waited til the weekend to celebrate with family.

I wish I can take a day off from work, but it's not important enough for a day off!
