happy birthday cards for grandson Spending time with the birthday boy or girlWhen someone makes the choice to not celebrate their birthday they are only making
the choice to not make a big deal about it. This can be for a variety of reasons that need not be discussed, but it can
confuse those who want to have a special party to celebrate the day. As suggested above, the mere act of spending time with
someone can more than make up for that loss.
Take, for instance, someone who enjoys playing board games over light wines. If you want to give them a happy birthday, you
can do worse than calling them a few days beforehand and suggesting a board game night. If they agree, see about gathering a
few of your closest friends to join in, but let them know to keep the birthday wishes to a word or two and perhaps a gift or
card. This way, the focus is on the activity that was agreed upon rather than on the birthday, while still recognizing it as
a special day.
