Siblings with close birthdays

I'm one of 9 kids..
There was bound to be some birthdays close together haha
#1 was 8 years old when #5 was born.. on her birthday! They are close because of that, and they love sharing a birthday. #1 thinks #5 was the best birthday present, even now 19 years later.
Funnily enough, #1 married a man with the same birthday as them! They got married on said day too!
#6 was born on out granddads birthday, they had a special bond because of that.
#7 was born 6 days before #1 and 5 and 1 fay before mum and dad's wedding anniversary. Kind of cool cause we have a lot of celebrations around that time.
#8 was born mid November. She unfortunately passed away at 19 months. When mum fell pregnant with #9 just a few years later, you can imagine her shock to know she was due on #8 birthday! #9 came early, beginning of November. Only 2 weeks between the two though..
I am now pregnant with my first, and DD is due exactly between these two. One week early or one week late she will be sharing a birthday!
Not even mum and day got out of it haha, dad's birthday is 3 days before #2 and mums is exactly a week before mine.
From a parents perspective I know you want each child to have their own special day, but honestly as kids we loved all the birthday close together, it's so much fun!
Our birthdays are:
November 7th (DD's due date)

My younger brother was born on my 9th birthday. All I wanted for my birthday was a baby sister! Because of the large age gap we did quite different things for our birthdays and he usually had his celebrations a different day. I did used to feel like he stole my birthday but I got over it and it was nice to celebrate my 30th and his 21st together.
DS1 was due a week and a half after our birthday and I joked that he would be born on that day and he was!!! It was the best birthday present ever. Lucky I was already used to sharing that day.
I guess it depends on the age gap and how well they get along whether you'd do combined celebrations or not.

I don't know how close you mean, but my eldest two children have birthdays that are 18 days apart.
It's never been a problem, I've never actually thought much about it to be honest. A

hi jef, I was born three years and one month after my sister, so the birthdates one month apart. I remember always getting a small gift on her bday and she got a small gift on my bday. but only for a few years, it stopped before I got into double digits. I have twins so that is a different story. I have grandchildren almost sharing a birthdate, so for convience of people travelling their celebrations are combined for now. we will have three cousins with close birthdates, so it could be getting more tricky. I think just do what suits your family. there are no rules when it comes to this sort of thing. marie.
