I mean, America gets fireworks, BBQ's, days off, sparklers, races, and colored clothing.
July birthdays get leftover striped cake with a few candles, and call it a day.
I'm just kidding, of course. At least we don't have birthdays in December, because who can compete with Jesus' birthday??!
This year I turn 35. Apparently this is a "big one," as everyone keeps asking what I am doing for the "big day." I pretty much stopped planning birthday parties for myself somewhere in my early 20's, opting to spend that money on highlights for my hair and facial cream instead. Nothing is planned, but I will be happy to spend time with my family and friends at various lunches and dinners over the next month. Honestly, that is what I love the most - just time with family and friends.
Just for fun, I thought I'd share with you all the similarities between myself and the USA, in honor of both of our birthdays:
-We are both wide
-The U.S was born in 1776; I was born in 1976.
-Um, that's about it. ;)
