It's my birthday today, Sept 19. I was born in 1972.
I find it interesting that so many people I know post a "Happy Birthday" on my Facebook page. All of those years inside the WTS org., and I always thought birthdays were evil, Pagan, God dishonoring. As it turns out, birthdays are just a way of telling someone that you're happy they were born. Nothing more. When my friends find out I grew up a JW and never celebrated birthdays, they look at me as if to say, "You're kidding!"
It's no big deal, really. I guess having grown up as many of you did, without celebrating them, my B-day isn't all that important to me. However, it is nice to have so many people wishing me to have a happy birthday. It feels good. Too bad there are so many JW's who don't know how nice it is.
