12-93 Andy 8th birthday party.jpg

Having a Christmas Eve birthday means your birthday party often comes early, and who doesn't like early presents?

This year, my birthday falls on a Thursday. Next Thursday, to be exact.

If you check your calendar, you’ll notice next Thursday is also Christmas Eve, which makes me a Christmas baby (best present ever, right?).
