    If you lost your job two weeks before, would you still celebrate your birthday?

    If you were in a rut, and didn't have a job or much money would you still celebrate your birthday? How?

    Probably, I mean I don't really celebrate my birthday.  But it would be a nice dinner with friends.

    Absolutely. It is a day of celebration and thanks giving in my view. Generally I have celebrated my birthday most of my life with a time of quiet, reflection, and thanksgiving. Of course the day is as most any day while there will be some who wish best wishes, offer blessings, and a moment of recognition. Yet, for me it is a moment of realizing my parents had a dream and I am the fulfillment of that dream. I ponder . . .

    Yes, I would because it would still be a special day and my kids would make me surpirises and it would cheer me up

    I think that depends on your financial situation. It would be foolish to spend an exorbitant amount of money for your birthday if you can barely afford to live, but this goes with or without a job. Birthdays come around every year, you will get a chance to celebrate again. Don't put yourself in debt.

    if i don't have a job but someone is willing to give me a treat for my birthday, why not? as long as I am not forking out any money

    Good answers! I would invite friends and family and cook. We could have a potluck, somebody could bring a bottle of wine. I think, I'd just be creative, since I didn't have a lot of money.

    I've always tried to take the day off on my birthday. So my birthday celebrations wouldn't change much. It just won't be as "extravagant" because of the job loss.
