    DS birthday always falls on school holidays but if it didnt Id send him to school still. Especially the first few years of school where you can take in cake, cup cakes, popcorn etc. for the whole class to celebrate

    Emsmum85 I wouldnt make her stay home. Of course if she wanted to go she could But if she wants to stay home and do something with family she can as well. Its up to her. I always stayed home because it was funner then going to school IMO.

    ETA - didnt expect so many replies lol I never start long threads

    Mine don't as they are both born during school holidays as will our third. Amazingly we never planned for it to happen that way, so it's by pure luck that they'll never have to go to school on their birthdays.

    My girls go to school on their birthdays, and in primary school take a cake to share with the class. DD5 is dissapointed that hers is always in the hollidays so she doesn't get to be at school on her birthday. She gets to take a cake on the first day on the next term to cellebrate the birthday she has just had.

    My girls always go to school on their birthdays. DD2 & DD3 love taking cup cakes into school and having everyone sing happy birthday. In fact if their birthday falls on a weekend I have to send in cup cakes for the friday or monday so they don't miss out LOL.

    We don't do proper parties every year and even when they do have a party it's not with everyone.

    DD1 liked taking cup cakes in all through primary school too. And now she is in High School we have found there is a tradition that all their friends give them a flower for their birthday.

    We never had to go on our birthdays. And then I made it a rule never to work on my birthday either! ( actually made that a "rule" at my work with all the staff!!) I suppose I'd leave it up to DS to decide , I think when they are younger they may want too but may change their minds when they get older?

    My grandpa used to be a director of a massive multi-national company- he, nor any one that was aroud him had a day off on their birthdays.

    He now runs 3 small businesses where all but 2 or 3 of the staff request days off for their birthday and he HATES it, Thinks its the slackest thing out

    I never had days off school for my birthday, and I had my 21st off work, and 1/2 a day off work on my 18th soI could set up for my party (I still copped flack for that from my grandpa)
