Memory Monday-Winter Birthday

Memory Monday-It’s a thing…

To all my readers born in winter months, nobody knows our struggle.

What I remember most about my birthdays is snow. Snow. Snow. And more snow. Forget parties or going somewhere special. I heard of some winter babies deciding to celebrate the half way mark since that puts them in a warmer month. I thought about it a few times, but I’m not sure I’d know how to deal with a birthday that didn’t include phrases like:

If it doesn’t snow…

If the weather isn’t bad…

As long as the roads are clear…

It will be nice on X date (that was close to my birthday, but never actually on my birthday)

As a child, those issues were my mother’s problems. Honestly, she did a great job. I always had cake and ice cream (except the year I turned seventeen when I had to go buy my own cake, but that’s a story for another Memory Monday maybe). She would invite my cousins and the other kids in the neighborhood. To be honest, I think my cousins came to my party for the cake. Still, no matter who showed up or didn’t, I remember my birthday was always a big deal.

I included a few pictures below. For my young readers, that’s an Electric Company album which is like a really big CD. I also apparently had a fondness for jersey style shirts with numbers on them. Having my birthday at my Aunt Bessie’s house was kind of a bid deal too.

  1. I have been working on pictures for days…putting them in albums. There are so many. My date back to the black and white. There is a lot to be said for digital. I date before the Electric Company. I go back to Howdy Doody and Captain Kangaroo before your time.
