If you’re reading this, you probably have a birthday in March. That, or you want to know why you have a better birthday month. Don’t deny it! Sadly, all months were not created equally, and it seems that March ended up getting the short end of the stick. Of course, all birthdays are still wonderful, though these next four reasons show the true struggles of having your birthday in the good ole month of March.
1. The weather is horrible.
If you live somewhere that has a defined winter, then this struggle is for you. The weather is nothing but bipolar when it can’t decide if it wants the snow to stay or melt away. March is basically spring + winter = sprinter. This means a combination of snow, rain and shine, sometimes all in the same day! When you are making special birthday plans, you don’t know if you will be building a snowman or celebrating outside on a beautiful spring day.

3. Your birthday is never on spring break.
What’s even more depressing than having your birthday during midterms is not having your birthday during spring break. It’s almost like the school administrative schedules spring break away from your birthday on purpose, but don’t fret just yet. If you prayed to the birthday gods enough, you might have been lucky enough to have your special day fall on spring break. Only to find out all your friends are going on vacation. While your BFF is sipping daiquiris at the swim up bar, you are putting a birthday hat on your dog. You can never win.
4. Everyone is sick.
It’s your birthday! You’ve rounded up everyone you know so you can have the sickest party ever! But suddenly, your phone vibrates with group message texts. All your friends are sick and can’t go, and then you
But have no fear, because a birthday in March doesn’t have to be all bad! If you fall around St. Patrick's Day, you can pretend the parade is for you. On daylight savings time, you get a bonus birthday hour. Most importantly, you share a birthday month with the Biebs! To celebrate, here is Justin singing just for you! Happy birthday, March!
