Why I love being a December Baby.

So, according to Google it’s my birthday today – doncha just love how they not only know but they make your page all special for you for the day? When I hover over the image it says Happy Birthday Amy!


Most people I know who don’t have a December birthday always take a moment to sympathise with me when I tell them my birthdate.


But I’ve always loved having a birthday really close to Christmas and being a December baby. It’s such a special time of the year and I feel extra special for being born amidst it all.


People are happy and festive and smiling wherever you go. There are parties to attend and carols in the shops and lots of pretty lights everywhere.

Not to mention that there are 3 December birthdays in my house so if you can’t beat them, join them, right? My hubby’s birthday is the 4th and my daughter’s is the 31st. Throw in Christmas and its one long (expensive) month of celebrating and cheer.

I love that the flower for December is Holly (of course!) and also that I’m a cusp baby. A Sagittarian born on the cusp with Capricorn. I really dont know what the hell that says about my personality etc as I’m not into astrology but I like it ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m also born on the winter/summer solstice (depending in which hemisphere you live) which makes me feel just a little bit pagan ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe I’ll go out and dance naked in the moonlight tonight.


But probably not….

I also share my birthday with Samuel L Jackson, Keifer Sutherland (who is older than me by 3 years so that makes him 50 today!) and Jane Fonda!

But mostly I love that I’ve got to go one more time around the sun. That I’m alive and l live in a lucky county in a blessed part of the world. That I don’t want for anything. That I have food in my belly and clothes on my back and shelter and world class health care if I need it. That I get to write books that make people happy for a living!! I love that I don’t live under the constant threat of bombs or tanks or bullets. That the treat of tyranny is remote.

Because there are much, much worse things to be than a December baby!

How about you? When is your birthday? What’s your star sign and was there anyone famous born on your birthday?
