Who has family birthdays around Christmastime ?


Who has family birthdays around Christmastime ?

Celebrating Truffle's 7th birthday !
For over an hour, he and 11 year old Conker have been enjoying an energetic game with his new rope toy. They are very good friends, and it is great to watch them both healthy and playing happily. Can you see they are holding paws ?

I thought it would be fun to ask who has family birthdays in December or early January, so they end up celebrating rather mixed up with the Christmas and New Year festivities. Does that include you ? I doubt anyone can top the December birthday numbers in Neellan's family !

Happy Birthday Truffle you are having a fun time with Conker sharing your presents :o)

21 Dec, 2015

 

Happy Birthday Truffle.
I think it is a pity to have a December birthday, especially for a gardener. I would always want a gardening gift. Shoes, handbags, toiletries don't do anything for me!

21 Dec, 2015

 

Thanks Pam and Amy, and Siris ..
Siris's friends please take note ... she would like GARDENING gifts for Christmas and birthday ! ;o)

21 Dec, 2015

 

Just to say Merry Christmas to you TT and your dogsx

21 Dec, 2015

 

Thanks J. Seasons Greetings to you. I have put on a Christmas blog, but didn't want Truffle to miss out on a birthday mention ! x

21 Dec, 2015

 

beautiful dogs Terra. They always look so sharp & well cared for. Merry Christmas.

21 Dec, 2015

 

Thanks Paul ...
Happy Holidays to you. My dogs have already enjoyed so much energetic fun today, that they're both taking a well-earned snooze !

21 Dec, 2015

 

Happy Birthday, Truffles, I wish you all the best in everything , Hugs and kisses :-)))

Happy Birthday Truffle :) x
Have a lovely day ...

I haven't got anyone with birthdays around Christmas time now.
My mother's was on Boxing Day, and my father's was in early January, but they are no longer here.
All other birthdays are spread evenly throughout the year :)

My parents' wedding anniversary was also on 21st December ... I never knew why they wanted to get married at such a dreary time :( lol

21 Dec, 2015

 

Thank you, Hywel ...
My parents' wedding anniversary was also in December !

21 Dec, 2015

 

Well well ! :o)

21 Dec, 2015

 

Happy Birthday Truffle! My daughter in law celebrated her birthday on the 11th of December. Oh, and my OH and I celebrate our Wedding Anniversary on Christmas Eve...does that count?

21 Dec, 2015

 

Hi Waddy ... thank you ...
that's two December dates ... definitely puts your family in 2nd place after Neellan ! :o)
Happy Wedding Anniversary for Christmas Eve. x x x

21 Dec, 2015

 

Thank you xx

21 Dec, 2015

 

Happy birthday Truffle....my birthday is in january... many joint birthday gifts over the years... we are waiting to see if our granddaughter will be a december baby like her dad or keep us waiting till the new year.

Very busy time for u Neellan...

our busiest time is at easter time...we have two children born on the 3rd april 2 years apart..and the twins were due on the same day two years later but arrived one week early on 27th march. we always have a birthday week...

21 Dec, 2015

 

Hi Sandra .. interesting to read your family birthday dates ... exciting about the granddaughter !

21 Dec, 2015

 

Terra I am bursting with excitement...

21 Dec, 2015

21 Dec, 2015

21 Dec, 2015

 

Such a lovely happy photo!
🐾🐾Happy Birthday to Truffle!🐾🐾
My husband's birthday is on the 12th December and mine is early in January - not a good time to have a birthday at all!!!

21 Dec, 2015

 

Hi Chris ...
Thank you. 🐾🐾 Love those pawprints ! 🐾🐾
So, that makes two birthdays for your family ... so tying with Waddy at the moment for second place !
Happy birthday for early January !

22 Dec, 2015

 

Happy birthday wishes from me, Truffle ... that's a lovely photo.

I have future son-in-law's birthday and daughter-in-laws both in December, then a nephew and brother-in-law both in January.

My late Grandmother was a New Years Day baby so we always celebrated the New Year in style with her!

22 Dec, 2015

 

Hello Shirley .. Truffle says thank you ...
Your family birthday list definitely moves you up to second place... just behind Neellan !

23 Dec, 2015

 

Hope truffle had a good birthday.As you know, Tt,mine was the day after his (22nd) .......my brothers birthday was also Christmas week.his was 19th but he passed away 5 years ago.
I always joke with people who have a birthday near Christmas and say One big present isn't the same as two little ones is it??...they usually know what I mean.not that I missed out as a child really.
I worked on my birthday yesterday(as Santa) and there was a little boy whose fifth birthday it was ...it seemed strange getting everyone to sing him happy birthday but not letting on it was also Santa's birthday.
Strangely, my wife's friend from teacher training college who was her maid of honour when we got married 35 years ago, also shares my birthday 22nd. We h a e a few birthday coincidences as her late husband also shared a birthday(25 August) with our youngest son and my mums husband. And in May, my mum and wife have the same birthday 10th and my eldest son the 14th! Just like buses....they all come at once!!!

23 Dec, 2015

 

Hi Paul ..
Happy birthday for yesterday !
Interesting to read of your December birthday list and sorry to read your brother passed away. Yes, I can imagine Santa singing happy birthday to the boy, when it was also Santa's birthday !

23 Dec, 2015

 

Congratulations, if rather belated, to Truffles for his 7th birthday! It's great to see the two dogs playing together! :-))

In my family & my wife's there are several birthdays in December & beginning of January. I have a sister whose birthday is in December. Then we have a grandson, also in December. I also have a nephew whose birthday is on the same day as our grandson's. In my wife's family in Spain she has a cousin, called Jesus, whose birthday is on Christmas Day!!! Then her mother & sister have their birthdays on the same day at the beginning of January! We went over last year to be present at my mother-in-law's 90th birthday!

Have a great Christmas & a happy year of gardening in 2016.

23 Dec, 2015

 

I think Bloomer is referring to the fact that Freya our eldest granddaughter was born on 3rd April 2011. Seems to be a popular date ☺
Also, forgot that my Aunty (mum's sister) has her birthday 28th December.

23 Dec, 2015

 

Yes, I was Julia..such a coincidence about our Grandchildren's Birthday..even more so,that our Husbands are only four days apart too..we just had to be friends,I think :o) xx

23 Dec, 2015

 

Hi Balcony ...
Truffle says thanks for the birthday wishes. Your birthday list seem equal to Neellan's ... especially with a Christmas Day birthday for your cousin ... and named Jesus !

All best wishes to your family here and in Spain for a happy Christmas and wonderful 2016.

24 Dec, 2015

 

Wow, what a lot of christmastime birthdays 😆
Meant to say my OH and I share a birtday in may. .....he's never forgotten my BD........yet 😉

Merry christmas 🎅👼🎅

24 Dec, 2015

 

Hi Pam ...
great to know your OH remembers his own birthday ...
and never forgets your birthday ;o) x

24 Dec, 2015

 

Lovely photo Terra :)) We have just two December birthdays: mine the 19th, my sister the 29th. Yes, as children we often had 'combined' presents! I had a wonderful day this year with cards, friends, cake and a blazing log fire - feel very lucky :))

24 Dec, 2015

 

Hi Sheila ... Thank you ..
I'm glad your birthday was special this year ... I can imagine in early years, you and your sister wishing your birthdays weren't quite so near to Christmas. x

24 Dec, 2015

 

Noris, my French bulldog, was born on 24th December 2012. In fact, he is Capricorn, lol.

24 Dec, 2015

 

Happy 3rd birthday Noris :o) x x x

24 Dec, 2015

Hope you all have a lovely christmas =^.-.^=

25 Dec, 2015

 

Hi Linda and Stripes ...
Truffle is having one long party ... from birthday through to new year.
Stripes ... seems your friends and family have their share of Christmastime birthdays. Happy holidays :o)

25 Dec, 2015

 

My birthday is on January 4th and always had "this is for Christmas and your Birthday" when I was young!

26 Dec, 2015

 

Oh Cammomile.......
Being a maybaby I really feel sorry for christmas/newyear children.....you should have an "official" birthday in the summer like the Queen 😆

26 Dec, 2015

 

Hi Cammomile ...
Disappointing for you to receive combined Christmas/birthday gifts.
I nominate your official birthday as 4th July.
But enjoy your other birthday on 4.1.2016.

26 Dec, 2015

 

That's very kind Pam and Terra, perhaps I should have an official Birthday. You can call me Mam as opposed to Marm!

26 Dec, 2015

 

Terratoonie:

Happy Birthday to Truffle! :>) Conker looks really happy, also.

I hope you had a great Christmas and have a very prosperous, Happy New Year! :>)

We had a great Christmas in San Diego this year. It actually felt like Christmas because of the cooler than normal weather. The last 5 Christmas Days have been from around 80 - 85ºF (27 - 29ºC) here. This Christmas Day a chilly 62ºF (17ºC).

27 Dec, 2015

 

Belated Happy Birthday Truffle! I can't believe he is 7 Tt,
I remember when you first got him. Lovely boys together, hope you all had a smashing Xmas like me...:)) X

27 Dec, 2015

 

Cammomile ... I promise not to call you Marm ... or Marmite ;o)

Thanks Delonix ... I hope you had a great Christmas.
I've been watching the TV news and very freak weather conditions in many parts of the USA, as well as high levels of rain in areas of the UK. All happiness to you in 2016.

Hi Janey ... Thank you ..Yes, my 'baby' Truffle is 7 years old ... doesn't seem possible... he still acts like a puppy... Wishing you all the very best for 2016. x x x

28 Dec, 2015

 

Lovely pic of Truffle & Conker playing, looks like Conker may have the edge, lol.
My d-i-l's b'day is tomorrow & my daughter is beginning of Jan. My partner & I are a week apart in March & I always thought how much better it would be to have b'days in summer but when planning my family they turned up in Nov, Dec & Jan - so much for planning, lol.

28 Dec, 2015

 

Hi Green finger ...
Thank you ... Usually, Conker has ability to concentrate for longer than Truffle ! Seems like you have more than your fair share of winter birthdays in your family ... I hope they all enjoy their special days !

28 Dec, 2015

 

I hadn't been on here for about a year so missed all this ! Glad to see Conker & Truffle are in good health & Truffle had a good B'day. Birthdays in Dec used to be a nightmare as my Brother-in -Law Dec 5th, Brother & Aunt ( no longer with us ) 14th, Mum ( no longer with us ) & my Daughter 18th & Mum & Dad's W/A 16th...

16 Mar, 2016

 

Wow Nancy...
that's a lot of celebrations !
