    Pagan Birthdays..and The question "Are Birthdays pagan"

    I know,it seems we Pagans (At least in the eyes of other paths) started EVERYTHING...

    I really could not make this stuff up,it would sound way to silly.
    I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up.
    Mark Twain

    Somewhat like Hunter S. Thompson who was called a gonzo Journalist,I consider myself to be something of a gonzo Pagan.

    The wizard be in: But be warned if you poke him to much,the standard wand of anal probing +10 may be utilized.

    It is interesting that humans seem to believe that they are the crown of creation,until nature drops a house on them....Just saying....

    I have decided that I no longer want to be an adult... If anyone needs me, I'll be in my blanket fort, coloring.

    Trust lost,is trust never regained.

    There is so much crazy in that post. So, anyone who celebrates their birthday is going to hell? What the crap?

    Re: Pagan Birthdays..and The question "Are Birthdays pagan"

    I always thought birthdays weren't really anything....like, it's just a cultural thing where we get to celebrate ourselves. Kids love them because kids are kind of self-centered when it comes down to it, and adults more or less choose. I know people who don't like the attention so they don't celebrate them, and people who LOVE the attention (myself included) and make a huge deal of them.

    I've never connected them with religion though. I think some people just want something to be angry about.

    I've never connected birthdays with religion. I think of them as a way of making sure everyone gets some attention devoted to them at least once a year. People like to feel special once in a while.

    However, in saying that I don't tend to celebrate my birthday much. I don't really like the attention or the fuss. :P
