If you’re a January baby, then you know the struggle. Having your birthday so close to Christmas just isn’t any good. From getting the Merry Christmas AND Happy Birthday cards to everyone being skint, I’m certain you’ll understand at least one of these:
No one has any money after Christmas so forget that big night out you had planned.
If you do go out, you’re outfit is more Ski Sunday than Strictly.
Everyone’s trying to detox so that ‘cheap meal’ in replacement of the night out isn’t going to work either.
Everyone’s all shopped out, so vouchers it is.
You may have already had your birthday present. ‘It’s for Christmas AND your birthday’ is your all-time favourite phrase... not.
People might forget it’s your birthday as they’re all sad about being back at work.
You’re either still surrounded by Christmas decorations or Valentines chocolates depending on which end of the month you are. Not cute.
You have nothing to look forward to in the middle of the year. All those July babies have it best.
All the good telly has started so when you hear ‘I’d rather stay in’ you know that they’re curled up on the sofa watching Netflix.
However… it’s a great excuse to still be eating cake after Christmas!
