If you could choose your own birth date, what would you choose?

I would choose 8th of August so I could be 8.8.88, I’m about 2 weeks after this which is a shame. Lots of people choose their own birthdays due to records being lost, typically in developing countries and loads choose 1st of jan, valentine’s day or Christmas day

My friend from Iran doesn’t know when her birthday is, her parents can’t remember even what month. She only found out recently that they just guessed at a date but now they think they were a few months off. Not sure how that works with her passport etc? But she has one

My dad had a fake birthday, he was born at a time when records weren’t kept and just chose first of the 2nd which was on all his papers

My dad’s (actual) birthdate is 1.1.51, which is pretty cool.

My nan had the wrong date (and name) on her birth certificate because her father was drunk when he went to register her birth.

I would keep mine. I share my birthday with two of the most wonderful people in the world, @anon5266188 and Nigella Lawson :heart:

A fine date to enter this world

mine is the 5th of may which I reckon is already the best possible one:
often coincides with labour day in some countries, liberation day in holland, cinco de mayo in mexico
karl marx’s birthday
cool that it’s 5/5
good time of year to have a birthday
probably more

I always used to want to switch my birthday to the summer because it was too close to Christmas for my liking and I figured having them like six months apart would be good.

but tbh I quite like mine where it is as it lines up nicely with my wife’s birthday as hers is mid November and mine is late November, so you have that sort of birthday week that kind of works. I usually take a week off work around that time too so we can go somewhere, didn’t work this year but have had mini trips in previous years - Copenhagen a couple of years ago was ace for example.

so yeah, leave it as it is please

Mine is 28ty June, which is pretty good. Six months before Christmas so celebrations are spaced out and it’s usually warm and sunny meaning we can do something outside. It also often coincides with Glastonbury.

Been seeing more and more star sign behaviour related meme nonsense on the old Instagram.

Would something like that help you decide when you want your birthdate?

  • Yeah bang into all of that stuff
  • Not really
  • Nope
