I used to beleive that no-one was born on the same day of the year. i was 4 when my cousin was born on my birthday, i thought that i would have to die because someone was born on my birthday and that there could only be one person born on that day!
I used to tell my little brother that, because his star sign was Cancer, that when he turned a certain age (his next birthday usually) that he would get Cancer and die...not the funniest of jokes now I come to think about it...I also used to tell him he'd turn into a girl as we are all born boys, but turn female at some random birthday when "it" falls off!
Since my parents brought me into this world, I thought they decided when my birthday would be influencing when I'd get presents. I'd get mad when my mom said that the day I asked her wasn't my birthday, thinking that she just didn't want me to get presents every day.
i used to believe that my birthday date changed every year so would ask 'mum what day is my birthday this year?' until i was about 12... iv led a confussin life
I think I believed that on your birthday you didn't turn a year older until your birthday party but this was disproved on my fifth birthday and my mom was rambling about me being five but I said "No I'm still four" because my party wasn't until later that night and my mom said "No you're five."
I used to think you grew a certain amount on your Birthday, you ONLY grew on your birthday, and on your birthday all your clothes would also grow however much you grew so they would still fit.
I remember my mum saying I had grown out of some clothes quite a few times, and this used to puzzle me. Eventually I decided they had grown like me, just not enough for me to fit into them any more.
I was a weird kid - still kinda am!
I used to beleive that the singing of "Happy Birthday" was the actual process of making you a year older. Therefore when I had it sung to me at nursery school and at home, I thought it would add two years on to my age!
when i waz little i used to think that i didnt have a birthdathen i thought i had three brithdays feb.28 feb.29 & march 1 because i waz born on feb 29
When I was 6 in 1990, I used to think that when I turned 7 I would be born in 1983. I thought that the year you were born always changed as you got older.
I used to believe that because my birthday was on the 3rd of July and my sisters was on the 20th of June....that my birthday should come before hers because 3 comes before 20. hahaha it wasnt until years later that i realized you had to fit the months into the equation as well LOL.
When my brothers and I were young our Father whos birthday is on 26th January used to tell us all the fireworks and celebrations were for his birthday. I remember at school being asked what we did on Australia Day? I replyed "Don't you mean Dads Birthday" I was devestated to find out that not everyboby was celebrating my Dads birthday.
I used to think my mom and Doctor Suess were twins because i had the same birthday.
Sometimes for my birthday, my parents ordered a cake with my name on it. I thought they just dropped by the bakery to buy it. I remember thinking, how did the bakers know it was my birthday and how did they know my name.
Since I was born on the 4th of July, I really thought the entire country celebrated my birthday.
When I was in first grade I told this one girl that it was my half birthday (birthday plus six months). She told me that if you pay attention to half birthdays you'll always be shorter. I was horrified, because she was so much taller than I was!
When I was a little kid, I thought R.I.P had something to do with parties. So when it came to my birthday and I was writing invitations to my party for my friends, I happily wrote on the bottom "R.I.P" instead of "R.S.V.P"
When I was little, I thought very year you had a birthday, you went into someone else's body, but your eyes, and your brain were the same still. Haha. I don't know why. I guess I was odd.
i was born july 26 so i just barely escaped being a cancer (im a leo) and i was so relieved because i tought that everyone who is a cancer has cancer!
Someone I know thought that your favorite number has to be the same as your age, so on your birthday your favorite number is different.
I used to believe that on your birthday you were alowed to either chose to leave the earth forever or stay another year. I found out it wasn't true when I didn't get asked that on my birthday.
