680: December 25th
On Christmas Day, most kids whose families celebrate the holiday get Christmas presents. And kids who were actually born on the 25th may feel a little put off because they don't get a special day all to themselves like their siblings and friends do. A lot of families alleviate this by celebrating the child's birthday on a day other than the 25th, so the kid will still get his party.
In the title text, Randall provided a lovely image for the people turning 27 on this date (Christmas Day, 2009) that would surely have them reaching for the brain bleach.
- [On one side, a family of four gathered around a Christmas tree, the daughter and son looking excitedly at the presents under the tree; on the other, a character wearing a party hat, sitting dejectedly before a birthday cake. The panel edges are decorated with holly and a wreath.]
- Happy Birthday to those of you born on the 25th!
- Sorry you get kinda shafted by the overlap with Christmas.
