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"
I remember I used to think that nobody else in the world had the same birthday as me. But then this girl from school told me hers was the same day as mine. I showed lots of excitement when she told me, and later went home thinking that she obviously was lying.(I was about 4 or 5 at the time.)
When I was little I thought if I didn't have a birthday party, I wouldn't age and my younger sister would start to catch up with me and eventually get ahead, so of course I always was very anxious to have a party!
I used to believe that everyone had their own special day of the year called a 'birthday'. During my 1st grade Show and Tell, I told my class that I was special because I was born on my birthday!
When I was little, I didn't understand the concept of years changing how old people were. I thought that since I was born in January and my little sister (by four years) was born in February, that was what determined our ages. When I learned my Grandma was born December 23rd, I exclaimed, "Grandma! You're older than Jesus!"
She didn't like that.
I thought that my parents made me write thank-you notes for my birthday and xmas presents because they were jealous that I got so many presents and therefore wanted to punish me.
When I was younger, my mum told me that because it was a leap year, I would miss my birthday and would have to stay the same age for another year. Even though my birthday is in September and nothing to do with leap years, I believed her and cried for ages.
when i was younger one of my older brothers told me i was just a joke that our mom brought home one day because i was born on april fools day
When I was young, once on the bus a girl asked me when my birthday was, and I told her it was in the pink panther month(February).
I was born on Halloween, and until I was about 10 or 11 I used to believe that the costumes, trick or treating, parade, etc. were all in honor of ME.
When I was in early grade school I had a friend whose birthday one year was on Friday the 13th. I wondered how come I never had a birthday on Friday the 13th.
My birthday is the seventh of December.
My earliest memory is the night befor emy third birthday. Naturally, I was very excited at turning three(!) and had butterflies in my stomach. I believed that feeling was because I had a big two inside my belly and, overnight, it was slowly changing into a three! Why? I have no idea!
My birthday is April 2nd and every year on April fools day my dad used to tell me the government had cancelled the next day so I couldn't have a birthday and I used to think "parents wouldn't lie about something that important!" Somehow I have made it to 25 regardless of this.
My birthday is November 11th, Veteran's Day. Until I was about six or seven years old, I thought I was a veteran. After all, it said so right on the calendar. Even after discovering I wasn't in fact a veteran, I still thought it cool that all the calendars had my birthday marked in red.
Until i was about 11 i thought you were supposed to be born on your mum's birthday if you're a girl and your dad's if you were a boy. i thought my brother had been born 5 months late!
When I was younger I thought everybody was born on the same day. My birthday is May 19 so I thought everybody was born on that date. Whenever some kid said his birthday was in February, I was like "No, that's not your birthday! Your birthday is May 19"
when i was a kid i used to believe that it will be better to die on the exact date of your birthday, sort of ending a cicle...where does this comes from?
I was born on St Patricks day, and one day an old Irish man in the park told me that anyone born on St Patricksday was part leprechaun.
I fully beleived it until I was 8
My birthday is near Christmas, my dad would drive me around the different neighborhoods to look at all the decorated houses, then he would tell me that all these people knew it was my birthday so they put lights up on their houses to celebrate my day. At 5 yrs old, I believed every word he said!
When I was little I used to think that You changed your name every birthday, So I used to go Threw my moms baby name book and pick out a name and tell my mom 'I want this one for my next birthday'
