My birthday is mid September, safe and dull as far as US holidays are concerned. And then I met Mrs Iggy, a Colombian.

My first birthday as a couple we were apart and I was chatting with her. After quite some time of conversation I finally did the whole "you know what today is?" routine. And she replied, of course and she was wondering when I was going to get around to mentioning that it was Día de Amor y Amistad... sort of Colombia's version of Valentine's Day.

December 25th is the worst. Poor Jesus.

My brother's birthday is on Halloween and I was always jealous. Big birthday dinner (with whatever main course he wanted, then ice cream and cake), followed by opening gits, then finally getting to go out to trick-or-treat.

I submit that early January (my birthday) is the worst. By that time, there have been parties for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve/Day, and everyone is finally able to come down from all the partying. Heck, *I'm* tired of all the partying and don't particularly want more cake, presents, and ice cream.
