Make a December Birthday Special
Making a Birthday special when it falls in December and especially
near Christmas can be a challenge.
Be sure and separate the Birthday from Christmas.
2. Put up birthday decor. A sign, banner, balloons, streamers and/or decorations will help separate it completely from the Christmas decorations. Try and set up one room with only birthday decorations (the kitchen or dining room) and leave the Christmas decorations out until after the birthday is over.
3. Make a birthday cake. Every child (and grownup!) loves to have their own cake complete with candles to blow out. Don't try and pass off a Christmas cake or pie as the birthday cake.
4. Don't give presents that are Birthday/Christmas presents. Remind family and friends that you are trying to make the birthday special and separate by not combining the two.
5. Give the Birthday Party a summertime theme such as a Luau or Day at the Beach to make it completely different then winter or Christmas decorations.
Some fun things to do to make the December birthday special:
If their birthday falls on the 24, 25 or 26th then try and celebrate a few days before their birthday.
Some parents choose to have their child's party in November or early in December when school is still in session and friends can come to the party.
