I'm bad at remembering any kind of dates. I get my mom's and brother's birthdays mixed up, and can't quite remember my anniversary. The engagement I recall, because it was September 10, 2001. My mom is no good at dates, and my sister is like the family diarist - she knows everything.

I would think that having your birthdays during an already festive period would be really disappointing. One thing the Latvian culture does is celebrate one's Name Day in a big way. Every day of the year has several names associated with it. So you get your birthday (with cake and ice cream) and then your name day, with even more cake and ice cream! Or whatever Latvians eat during these celebrations.
Hmmm. That would mean that if you know enough people with different names, that you could eat cake every day of the year. Sounds just about right to me!
