Hmm, Well, I don't know how to say this and make it sound, The way I mean it to sound, I don't mean for this to sound in any way bad. On Birthdays, As I've become older, I haven't celebrated my Birthday for literal years now, Birthdays, Have become something in my family that's really only a big deal for the Kids and grandkids, They have become something of a children's party kind of thing, Meant for the young. To me, It seems self-indulgent If I were to celebrate the Day I was born, And literally rejoice that my mortal coil is fading by the day.
I don't know, Literally, in most cases, I've found that most people, in general, tend to get cranky when you wish them a happy reminder of their mortality and inevitable loosening of this mortal coil. How many times has someone wished you a happy birthday and ultimately it was just an awkward experience because inside you're not celebrating? Maybe my thoughts on this whole subject are personally geared to my own experiences.
But, Even in the Ah days, The only people who got birthday condolences were highly active members and it was a mostly a novelty thread that in many cases lead to awkward patting each other on the back... I don't know. At my age when someone wishes me a happy birthday, It feels more like an attack than anything else. I think while my situation may be unique to me, Others may share the sentiment as I've never seen many seeking threads like that.
But then Not everyone sees the world the way I do. Some people may like a birthday thread. IDK.
I turned 61 4 days ago.
It is not a big deal but on old AU the thread was used much. If you get them to drop in for a birthday wish they will often stick around for other activity as well. Plus it was a bit of fun.
While my body is 61, the real me is tens of thousands of years old.
But that is something else entirely.
I will start the sticky thread.
If Nivek or others do not like it...
Well there is always the dumpster!
