    Interesting question. I had never thought about it. I believe birthday celebrating is more of a tradition than a religious event.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    hey vaughn speaks the truth, even our perfect woman has to agree with him..

    but back to the question i think there must be some religious factions that dont believe in celebrating the birthday of a person other than jehovah's witness, brand.. does anyone have any insight on Buddhism?
