Birthdays are vain celebrations of the creature at the expense of the Creator. We have nothing to do with our own births. So we should not be celebrated. If you truly wish to celebrate your birthday annually then go to church and worship God that day. He made you and gave you some of his life.
And no I'm not JW. Thats from the Bible.
Birthday celebrations are pagan. There are only two in scripture. One in each testament. And in each case, a pagan ruler executed a man for his own pleasure. Herod did so for a lap dance.
Mat 14:6 ¶ But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.
Mat 14:7 Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.
Mat 14:8 ¶ And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger.
Mat 14:9 ¶ And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath's sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her.
Mat 14:10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.
Mat 14:11 And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.
