December Birthday – Tips to making it special
If you have a child with a December birthday, it is a challenge making his or her birthday special when the month is filled with so many other holiday festivities.
#1 NEVER wrap your child’s presents in holiday wrapping paper; make sure it is BIRTHDAY theme wrapping.
#2 Schedule their birthday party with friends early in December even if your child’s actual birth date is later in the month. A party early in the month will allow your child to have a fun party with friends and ensure that more of them will be able to attend since many families go out of town later in the month.
#3 Do not skimp on the birthday present giving by saying to yourself or to your child “Christmas is coming”. You probably have an annual budget for birthday presents for each child and this should be the case regardless of the birth date.
Since my son’s birthday is December 10th, we created another family policy that we do not decorate the Christmas tree until after his birthday. (We may get the tree prior depending on time, but we don’t put it up and decorate it until the 11th).
Kids love their birthday and each year it should be a true celebration of them and for them regardless of the month they were born!
