Plan a Holiday Themed Party for the Special Birthday Person

Whether you’re amongst people born on Christmas or you have a Halloween birthday, be sure to plan a holiday themed party for the special birthday person.

The great thing about having a holiday birthday is the availability of decorations and themed activities are out the roof. Make the special someone feel unique as one of the few with a major holiday birthday.

Consider dedicating the day of the birthday person in their honor. In doing so, the day doesn’t just formally celebrate the holiday, but also their birthday as well. This way, they don’t have to compete for the attention against a major holiday.

Try to add holiday themed birthday activities such as:

  • Cookie decorating
  • Pumpkin painting
  • Pin the turkey
  • Snow globe making

Pick activities you’d never see at a typical birthday party to make it memorable for the birthday person. Remember it’s okay to ask for their input and see what their perfect birthday looks like to them.

Consider Having the Birthday Party Before the Holiday

If you don’t want a birthday on Christmas, happy Christmas Eve birthday, or happy Easter birthday, consider having the birthday party before the holiday itself.

If you have the birthday the day of, it may be challenging to invite friends and family over for the party as many travel during these times or spend it with their loved ones.

To avoid this, pick a totally different day to celebrate the birthday so everyone can be included. Give the special birthday person the chance to experience a traditional birthday party just like any other.

Dedicate the Day to the Birthday Person

To really make the holiday birthday special, dedicate the day to the birthday person. Let them choose in which way they want to celebrate. Don’t plan other holiday activities on top of their birthday.

Don’t forget a birthday cake! Even though there’s likely to be lots of themed cuisine around, be sure to provide a special birthday cake unique for their birthday. Done right, a holiday birthday can be the best kind of birthday out there.

Happy birthday (and Thanksgiving)! Having a holiday birthday can be awkward and disappointing, but they don’t have to be. Be sure to remember these ways to recognize both the birthday and the holiday!

What are you waiting for? The ultimate celebration awaits!
