Just because your child was born on a holiday doesn't mean he/she is doomed to forever share the spotlight with Santa Claus or the Easter bunny. Studies show parents are skirting this issue by celebrating their child's birthday separately from the holiday.
A www.babycenter.com poll asking parents how they celebrate a child's holiday birthday indicated that they take pains to separate the holiday from the birthday celebration. Twenty percent of nearly 5,000 parents polled said they move the birthday celebration to a different day. And 52 percent said they make a point to celebrate both separately.
