The ways people choose to celebrate their birthdays are as varied as the day is long, and some argue that many go too far these days by insisting on elaborate parties well into adulthood.
But perhaps no-one has been more indulged than a certain Jesus Christ of Nazareth (now northern Israel), who throws a hissy fit if there isn’t a massive celebration of ‘his day’ despite the fact that he died nearly two-thousand years ago.
Some of the adults throwing the parties are saying enough is enough when it comes to this special snowflake:
“It’s ridiculous! I’m expected to go to all this trouble cooking and thinking up games to keep everyone entertained, and he never even shows up.”
Though the birthday parties are expected to still take place on December 25th, some organizers say they will display their frustration by refusing to get a cake this time.
