Ah, the joys of sharing a birthday with a holiday. For one woman, her Thanksgiving birthday has always been a double celebration with her family. But when her mom suggests a joint birthday celebration with her brother-in-law, she draws the line and threatens to skip the festivities altogether. 🦃🎂 As the family drama unfolds, we're left wondering if she's justified in her decision, or if she's just being a bit of a party pooper. 🤔

A Thanksgiving Birthday Standoff 🎂🦃

Tired of her special moments being overshadowed, our Thanksgiving birthday girl decides to put her foot down and threatens to skip the family celebration if her mom insists on a joint birthday party with her brother-in-law. Despite being called selfish and facing backlash from her family, she ultimately chooses to host her own Friendsgiving, finally taking control of her birthday celebration. 🥳💪 Sometimes, it's important to stand up for ourselves and create our own traditions. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🤔💬

Separating Christmas and birthdays is important for kids' happiness 🙏
