5 Faces Only December Birthdays Understand

Since only people born this time of year know what it's like to compete with the holidays.

5 Faces Only December Birthdays Understand

Happy Birthday! Yes happy birthday to you, not Jesus. Everyone is saying happy birthday to Jesus but forgetting you. They're forgetting me too. Like you, I am a December birthday. While other people literally celebrate their birth month, birth weeks, or even an entire birthday we get a few hours then people go back to the holidays. Almost every religion has something major this time of year. Even if they do not believe or celebrate one of those holidays there is still just the "holiday spirit". This is for all of you and the faces we can give each other during this month.

1. The face you make when someone gives you a birthday and Christmas present at the same time, but all of your other friends get two separate ones.

Really? I see you. I know who you are. You know who you are. Unless it's expensive or you guys made arrangements beforehand don't pull this. Just don't.

2. The face you make when your party is decorated for Christmas and not for a birthday.

Not even streamers or a banner but a Christmas tree. Do you know what always takes the stage? The Christmas tree.

3. The face you make when someone knows it's your birthday but wishes you "happy holidays."

Some people celebrate their entire birthday month, some the entire week, some an entire weekend before or after their actual birthday. All we want is a few hours of that. Just a few hours when it can be about us.

4. The face you make when someone ask to celebrate your birthday after the holidays because they are more important.

Unless we're going to Disney World you better not pull this one. People argue over holidays, which ones are real, which ones we should celebrate, how we should celebrate; no one argues over a birthday and if it was that day.

5. The face you make when you meet someone else with a December birthday.

Because we are the only ones who actually know the struggle.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
