I know we talked about this when Joanne was planning Logan's birthday but I forgot what the general consensus was.

If your LO's birthday falls on a weekday, will you have their party the weekend before or the weekend after?

I assumed that because Allie's birthday was on Monday the 22nd, we'd do it either on Saturday the 20th or Sunday the 21st but now DH is making a big stink that it's bad luck to celebrate a birthday early plus it's Palm Sunday. I swear, it always has to be something. We can just never agree on anything He wants to do it on the 27th. I think it's utterly ridiculous that he wants to celebrate almost a full week later & he's accusing me of being impatient. I just think I'm not the only one who will think it's stupid. Any opinions?

Sadie's birthday is Thursday March 4th so I imagine we'll have her party on Saturday March 6th.

Melissa--I think the 20th would be perfect for her party! Palm Sunday is the 28th so having it the 20th wouldn't create a conflict for anyone (religiously speaking, that is)

Kendal's birthday falls on Thursday April 1st, but we are celebrating March 27th. DH will be in Arizona golfing the weekend after her birthday.

Jackson's party is 2 days after is birthday (his b-day is on a Thursday and the party is on Saturday)

I'd do it whichever weekend was closest to the birthday!

Maddy's is on Sunday the 21st. So it'll be that day.

Palm Sunday is on March 28th

I love that my husband let's me plan everything! And he just has to show!

Lekha's is on 23rd Saturday...and I am still debating if it would be ridiculous to have the party the next Saturday...

I guess I'm an oddball. Josh's bday is Mon. March 8th. I am not doing his party until Sun. March 14th. I wanted it after his bday and I have Spring Break that week so that's perfect for us.

Abby's last bday was Sun. Sept. 20 & i did the party on the 19th just because I wanted it on that day.

Thanks for your input everyone. Sounds like my husband is the oddball here. Try telling him that Maybe I misunderstood about Palm Sunday...maybe he was referring to the 27/28th weekend & I thought he meant the weekend prior. Either way, it doesn't make sense to me (to wait almost a week after)

Kennedy's party will be Feb. 21st. Which is the weekend before.
I couldn't get the next weekend off plus my best friend was going to be out of town that weekend. So we are having it early.

My mother always told me that it was bad luck to celebrate your birthday before your actual birthday and especially for your 1st birthday. So I see where Manny is coming from with that one.
Andrew's 1st birthday was on Thursday August 23rd, and we had a HUGE party on Saturday the 25th.
Morgan's birthday is on Thursday February 25th and we'll have a party on Saturday February 27th.

Maddox's birthday is on Tuesday, March 23rd. I'm not sure when we'll have his party. I feel funny about having his party even 2-3 days before his actual birthday. I feel like it spoils the fun of his actual day. I think i'm probably being ridiculous We will probably end up having it Saturday March 20th and then have a small family celebration on the 23rd.

Mikeys birthday falls on a Friday. Had he been 21, this would've been awesome, but we're having his party the next day Saturday. I say the closer the better for sure.
