I'm having my sons first birthday on a sunday, his birthday is actually the day after. I was going to do it saturday but my cousin is getting married that day... they won't remember it, and even when they're young as long as they get presents and have fun they don't care when it is! I see where you are coming from though, its not fair to him that his special day landed on a holiday! A friend of mine has a daughter (almost 2) who was born on christmas day, i can't even imagine that!

I think if you really want people to come to his party you should move the date to the Friday after Thanksgiving if possible. Unless you want to have a combo thanksgiving/bday party.

What about the friday after thanksgiving. That way you could have his party after working hours so most other people could be there as well as your husband, and it wouldn't conflict with a holiday.

my husband works on weekends and is off on weekdays. so i would have to do it on a weekday if i wanted him to be thier. I put it late in the afternoon to just so the family could come. i know he wont rememer it but i will.

Personally I would move it. I'm a late December baby myself, and I liked to keep it seperate from New Years or Christmas. Of course he won't remember now. If you think about it, most kids birthdays are celebrated on the closest Saturday anyway with the immediate family celebrating on the actual day.

i would do it on the saturday following thanksgiving. middle of the week birthday parties aren't really a good idea.
