If your birthday is anytime during the month of December, you know the struggle of feeling like your birthday gets lost of the holiday hustle and bustle. Although there are downsides to a holiday birthday, it is not all bad. These gifs from The Office give a look into what a Christmas birthday is really like.

 Drawing the line at skipping a birthday party because "there's not enough time"

 "Ohhh. You have a birthday this month?" 

When your attempt to make your birthday a big deal fails.

Emphasizing that you want a birthday present, too.

How you feel about having a holiday birthday most of the time

When someone makes an effort to make your birthday special

Because no one can come to your party due to Christmas gatherings

The budgeted birthday party

Your friends forgetting it's your birthday

 The spectacular surprise party your family pulled off

 When you realize how truly blessed you are and feel badly for complaining about it

 The perfect gift

 Your reaction at the end of the best birthday ever

 After your birthday and Christmas have passed

 Realizing that your friends and family are the best for making time for you/spending money on you during the busy holidays.

At the end of the day, I realize how blessed I am and know that having another year to celebrate my birthday at is enough to be thankful for.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
