Default December birthdays??

Does anyone here have a birthday close to Christmas? If you do, does it bother you if you get Christmas related gifts, that you can only use on Christmas not all year long??

It has always bothered me when people either group my birthday in with Christmas or give me gifts I can only use on Christmas. My birthday is on Dec 13th...and I know I'm going to be 31 so I need to get over it, but it just bugs me. If your birthday is in July and someone gave you something you had to wait until Christmas to use, you would probably be a little ticked also.

Last year my mother got me a Willow Tree figurine nativity set for my birthday. I like it, don't get me wrong, but I can only use it for Christmas. This year again she is getting me more pieces for the nativity set (my hubby told me). AAARRGGHH!! It's irriating and drives me nuts. I guarantee if I bought something for her now that is Christmas related and gave it to her for her birthday in August it would make her very mad. Why is it okay for people to do it to me because my birthday is right before Christmas, but it's not okay if you do it to them???

There is a reason Christmas related decorations and our tree are not allowed to be put up before my birthday in our house.

Okay...rant over. lol

My sister in law's mother is from Britain, not sure where though, and my nieces call her "Nin-nin".

I didn't want to be called by the usual names a Grandmother is called.I wanted to carry on an old tradition,my Dad called his Grandmother,Nin.It was only because he couldn't say Nan,so it stuck.And now I am Nin,my Dad was very happy about it.And they call Phil,Pip.So we are known as,"Nin + Pip."xxxxx

Funny!

As you probably know, my grandmother was born in London. I called her Grandma Emily in English of course, in despite of the fact that I was talking in Spanish... She passed away when I was 7 years old.
