My birthday falls in the dead of winter. February is the shortest but sometimes can be the coldest month in winter. It's a depressing month coupled up with me getting older. I began to strategically plan my trips between my birth day a couple of years ago. I really try not to be home during my birthday to avoid depression and the cold cold winter.
I try to celebrate in warmer climates so I don't have to bundle up to go out. Beach destinations is usually my target. I like to relax and do nothing on my birthday.
