My friend on Facebook, announcing his birthday drinks meetup:
Raise a glass to the Christmas season. Raise a glass to Thanksgivukkah. Raise a glass to Kwanzaa. Raise a glass to the Solstice. Raise a glass to the new year. And, if your arm isn’t tired after all that, raise a glass to a truly meaningless milestone: the 32nd anniversary of my birth.
His mother in the comments:
It is not a meaningless milestone to me. I happened to be there 32 years ago along with your Dad, in the Old Lying In Hospital. You are not alone, several family members are in the club of Christmastime birthdays including your sister 12/29, your cousins Andrew 12/24 and Katie 12/8, along with John and Kathy’s son Matthew (12/18). You came home from the hospital on Christmas Eve and were the best Christmas gift ever.
