Brent, you've received 20+ supportive responses to your original post, yet you've never posted back to us (and, yes, I see that you've logged in since then). That makes me wonder whether maybe one reason people don't go out of their way to celebrate your birthday is that when they do do something, like calling to wish you a happy day, you don't seem to appreciate it. I'm not saying that you don't appreciate it, but that maybe you don't sound like you do.
It took me years to learn this lesson. Other people are not mind readers. (apparently)

My next birthday is still months away, but I am looking at going on holiday for it. Haven't had a proper holiday in years and as the birthday is considered one of the big ones. And rather than spend it doing very little I feel I should treat myself.
Same here I'm planning a trip to GB. Any place you can recommend? If you're planning to come to Bavaria, I can give you a few insider tips (though with that username you'll propably go to Glenfinnan or Paris )

Re: It's my birthday, and I'll cry if I want to

my sister has been to all four and the pics she showed me were just awesome! I hope I'll get a chance to go there one day.

I also recommend Big Sur/Los Padres National Forrest, a coastal rain forrest in california. It's difficult to get in there (it's one of the most strictly protected areas)but it's totally worth it! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Sur

This is a great post and something that I think a lot of us do to some extent. Friendships and other relationships take effort. It's not guaranteed that you'll get out of it what you put into it, but it's usually something close.

And if you tell people you don't like big occasions for your birthday, eventually they'll start believing you and they won't throw any surprise parties.

Re: It's my birthday, and I'll cry if I want to

thank heavens for that! I for one hate surprise parties. My idea of the perfect b-day is to sleep long, have a chocolate croissant for breakfast, sit in the sun doing a jigsaw puzzle, have pizza for supper and go to bed early with a cup of tisane, one of my favourite books and a handfull of chocolates. And in between all this maybe a chat with my friends online

Yeah, you want the person to enjoy their birthday, not give them a heart attack.

Anyway, a birthday is whatever you want it to be. Doesn't have to be extravagant, but just make sure you enjoy it.

Ridiculous human custom.

Here's the deal - if you delete your birthday, you have permission to enjoy the hell out of 1 day a year, any day, of your choosing.

You might want to add Arches National Park to your list.

NONSENSE! I deleted mine right after doing away with my grandfather.

Bit of cloning and all fixed.
