Are there those who would prefer (all things being equal) a holiday birthday for their child? Or would you really prefer a different day?
Obviously there is more than one holiday this time of year...Solstice, Hannukah, Christmas...and Christmas eve, boxing day...even new years.
I'm going to keep the poll options simple, either yes to any holiday, no to any holiday, yes to some and not others (post in thread which ones if you want) or of course the obligatory other or "don't care"
Bear with me because this is the first poll I ever posted here I think! Ack, please ignore random apostrophization in poll. I hate when I do that!
I'd prefer though that he were born during the school term so that his friends aren't away or unavailable to celebrate with him. Plus, I really want a Sagittarius, not a Capricorn which he would be were he born at xmas!
Hence, I ticked other!
One gorgeous solstice babe 12/08, two smitten mothers - mothering consciously with conscience and compassion. Birth & Postnatal Doula. Student Midwife. Expecting #2 November '12.
This one is due after she was, the 26th...BUT if it comes a little early who knows!
I wouldn't mind a Christmas baby!
Perpetually breastfeeding or pregnant ENFP mom to a lot of kids...wife to a midwestern nice guy...living in tropical paradise...pink cats and homebirths rock!
Wife to DH(10/02) Mom to DD1('03), ('04), DS1('05), DD2('07), DS2('08), DD3('10) (08/11), (09/11). We follow Jesus, , quiverful, , ,,,, and we are a food allergic family.
If he was going to be born outside of the school term (summer break starts around Dec 19th here) then I'd prefer he were born on xmas day. My theory is that once you get to the week prior to xmas everything goes crazy and birthdays are more likely to get forgotten...but if birthday is on xmas day, then people will remember because it's a bit special.
Of course I will take the baby whenever it wants to be here. I just want a healthy little one in my arms.
nicole , mom to 3 boys here on earth 9, 7 and 4.5 and 2 girl's 2.5 and 10/16/11. Always remembering my babies in heaven: Sam (9/7/05) at 12.5 wks , Morgan (2/13/06) at 6 wks , Emeric (8/9/10 at 17 wks) and Pepper (11/26/10) at 8wks.
We plan on moving away from family...far away...again. So in order to celebrate w/ friends and have her bday parties, etc I would hope for her birthday to be as far away from a holiday as possible
My due date is 12/22, but I'm really shooting for 12/19 after my parents get here on the 18th.

Watch me go into labor on the 24th .
Soon, baby! Soon! I'm getting my membranes stripped on Thursday so hopefully he'll be ready and that will encourage him to come on down .
Wife, Doula and SAHM to six and expecting a new addition July 2012!
This baby's birthday is 99% likely to come during the 2 week school break every year. I think that once they are in school, I will probalby do the "half birthday" celebration at the end of June - especially if it happens to be a Christmas Eve, Christmas or New Years baby.

i am, however, excited about my new deduction. not only is she an additional deduction ($1000 depending on your income & tax liability), but kids born in 2008 qualify for the tax rebate we received early this year. you'll get it ($300) back after you file your returns. bonus! thanks baby! that 1300$ SO takes care of all of your expenses (HAHAHAHA!). sorry, i'm a lawyer, i can't help thinking like that.
With an early January due date... I'm thinking she will be born close to holidays anyway. lol My MW really thinks she is coming in Dec and I really have my fingers crossed for it actually... even if that means it will be even closer to Christmas. Our own little Christmas miracle.
