I have read extensively about the origins of birthdays, and I still don't get it. But it's not what it means today.
Even wedding veils were used to ward off the "evil eye". But it's not what it means today. And that's okay? Dont get it. Oh, and my birthday is coming up, but I'm still pimo, so it's not gonna get much recognition (obviously). I don't want to reveal my age or the date, because of my identity, but, hey feel free to wish me.
The whole thing pisses me off, because they are considered idolatry. You're not idolizing one person. Alot of people are celebrating their bday, so you're basically idolizing everybody on the planet. Okay, that's kind of dumb.
I'm sure there's non-dubs that dont even care to celebrate their bday. They probably dont want to be reminded about getting old. 😂
