Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas, Beautiful

So, today is Taylor Swift's birthday, and it's nearly Christmas, which makes me think she probably got a lot of combo gifts growing up. I've been thinking about that, because my first niece is due to be born any day now, and I keep thinking how she is probably going to get a lot of combo gifts, too. (A fate just barely avoided by her mother, whose birthday is 17 days after Christmas.)

I don't do a lot for birthdays or holidays or anything for both financial and psychological reasons, but I keep thinking that maybe I should calculate the niece's half-birthday every year and send her something for that. I haven't talked to my sister about that, but it's also the kind of thing I like to spring on her to keep her on her toes.

I lucked out getting born on July 17. Practically the middle of the year. Evenly removed from the Christmas bonanza on each side.
