    My son's 4th birthday happens to fall on Thanksgiving this year. So the wise-ass in me is preparing early with this question...

    Get him a cake and put the candles on that so he doesn't feel like his birthday is being co-opted by Thanksgiving.

    My birthday is near Mothers Day, and I always felt short changed as I had to share my celebrations.

    Yes. My nephews' birthday is Dec. 17. They don't even share cake with each other; they shouldn't have to go up against Jesus, either.

    My birthday is March 17. No lack of celebration there.

    The inclusion of the word "wise-ass" in the OP is the only thing stopping me from screaming in anger at this thread.

    A cake. There must be a cake with colors that have nothing to do with Fall.

    Every six years, my birthday is on Thanksgiving. We always had a separate cake for the occasion. Here's the thing: on the national day of gluttonous food intake, is there such a thing as too many desserts? No there is not.

    Also, I can attest that german chocolate cake goes good with turkey :)

    We're going to get him a cupcake or cake with candles for the celebration. But like I said, the wise-ass in me couldn't resist making a joke about combining it into Thanksgiving.

    My sister is due with her third on Thanksgiving -- and she's hoping he/she is early. Her birthday is Dec. 17 and she always HATED that it was so close to Christmas. Still does. And she does not want her kid to have to deal with that every six years or so.

    I like this Wenders chick.

    My birthday also falls on Thanksgiving this year and did a couple times when I was growing up, and I agree with the previously mentioned statements.
