Celebrating December events aside from Christmas
December 05, 2022
There are so many special occasions that don’t stop just because we have the Christmas holidays around us. Even though it’s busy everywhere preparing for family dinners and friend reunions, there are still birthdays, anniversaries, and other milestones that coincidentally happen in December too.
As a December baby, I can’t tell you how many times people have asked me if I just get one gift for Christmas or for my birthday. Before I could answer, my knee-jerk reaction was to laugh because it’s true and a valid excuse to just get someone one gift for a special December occasion and for Christmas. It’s practical and reasonable, especially for those who have other bills to pay. And of course, we shouldn’t expect and ask for gifts and we should just appreciate it if we even get one.
But just for discourse, don’t you think those who have special celebrations in December also need to be celebrated “properly?” And by properly, we mean, having a separate occasion for it since it’s not Christmas that you are being happy about. For instance, your firstborn was born on 23rd December and you want to celebrate that milestone in your life and be thankful of the life you were able to bring out to this world. Or maybe it’s you and your partner’s anniversary. Maybe you’ve been friends for the longest time and decided to call it official on the December date. Maybe it’s your mom’s 10th anniversary as a business woman.
There are so many reasons why you may be happy in December aside from the Christmas festivities. And besides, when you celebrate a friend’s birthday in October, does Christmas get canceled because the birthday was the first event?
It just doesn’t make sense. But more importantly, I sympathize because as I mentioned I’m a fellow December baby who just wants to open presents on Christmas Day and also for my birthday to still be celebrated on the day itself. I don’t want to have to choose like others who were born in a different month.
Anyhow, if you or someone special is celebrating something this holiday season we recommend making them feel the most loved by handing over gifts, practical ones that can make their lives much more convenient. We listed down below some FlexiSpot products to check out.

Happy celebrating!
