My birthday's Jan 2nd, and my sis is Dec 19th, so we're both about 1 week on either side of Christmas. She definitely got a more 'separate-from-Christmas' birthday parties, because often school was still in session, and people weren't off visiting family yet. Jan 2nd was harder, because people were tired of celebrating after all the holidays, and Christmas break was usually still going on. Hope for earlier-in-Dec babies
That said, we both make a "Christmas/birthday" list, and would get some gifts for each. It was particularly annoying for both of us when a birthday gift would come wrapped in Christmas paper, but it happens every year
I'm so hoping to join you ladies- I'm hopeful, and testing tomorrow at 13DPO, which would give me an EDD of 12/30/10!
