Brent's Birthday...aka the 4th of July
Pro: Holiday = Day off
Con: Holiday = People out of town
Pro: Birthday presents
Con: Last minute gifts include fireworks
Con: Fireworks are kind of a show stealer
Pro: People remember your birthday (I've never really had the full pleasure of this experience)
Con: People remember your birthday..as an afterthought. Ex: "Hey Brent, happy 4th of July!" "Oh yeah, and Happy Birthday."
Pro: Every birthday includes a party with the rest of the United States
Con: Every birthday includes a party with the rest of the United States
I suppose it could get old, but seriously, either the 4th of July or New Year's would probably be the ultimate birthday for me. Maybe I'm just a sucker for fireworks. But I suppose you always wish for what you can't have and we had a blast nonetheless. The day started off super early marking the course for the 5k run that morning (more on that later) and we had a birthday party and watched fireworks (obviously). It really was a pretty great day with near perfect weather and a melty ice cream cake, so what more could you ask for.
