Your Birthday is the most unique and special day of all.

 

Before you were born, no one ever celebrated “Your Birthday.”

 

Once you die, it is doubtful, anyone will celebrate, observe, commemorate, or even honor “Your Birthday.”

 

Once you have died, family, friends and relatives,in time, will forget “Your Birthday.”

 

I, Samuel E. Warren Jr., am the Self-Appointed and Self-Anointed “Your Birthday Prophet” Of Planet Earth. My calling is to remind you to never “blow off” or “ignore” Your Birthday

 

The Citizens Of The World love holidays. Holidays are a legitimate excuse to party.

 

Saturnalia

 

Christmas is One Of The World’s Oldest Holidays.

 

It is a Lie to say Christmas celebrates The Birth Of Jesus Christ; it does not. Christmas is an ancient winter celebration.

 

The Christmas holiday originally honored The First God Of Rome Saturn, who ruled generation, plenty, wealth, agriculture, endings,new beginnings and liberation.

 

The Roman Saturnalia Feast ran from December 17 through December 23.

 

Early Christians simply “stole” the holiday and “hijacked” it to December 25.

 

Christmas has always been celebrated and will probably always be celebrated because winter is a cold, dank,dark,dismal, depressing time at the end of the year.

 

People from antiquity to the present need to reassure themselves winter will end and a new year will begin with promise and warmth.

 

Christmas, the winter holiday, serves the logical purpose based on centuries of tradition and historical survival of the human race.

 

Christmas is simply The Global Holiday That Confirms Human Life Will Survive Winter’s Death Of Cold And Ice To Feel The Warmth Of Spring And The Continuance Of Life.

 

Civil Rights’ Leader’s Birthday

 

The Reverend Martin Luther King Jr’s Birthday became a legal Federal United States holiday to celebrate the birthday of the American Civil Rights Leader and Baptist preacher.

 

I was a boy, when the reverend was going around the United States making his speeches and preaching sermons that made people nervous and uncomfortable.

 

April 4, 1968 – Opal M. DeLong Warren, my mother, had got in the old white 1962 Chevrolet stepside pickup to go up the road and visit Grandma DeLong and Uncle Richard. I had decided to stay home and do homework in front of the TV.

 

April 4, 1968 – A few minutes after Momma left the familiar CBS News black and white eye logo filled the TV screen and I looked at the words, “Special Bulletin.” I do not recall, the actual words, but the report stated that the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., had been shot.

 

America as a nation seemed to fight The US Civil Rights Movement “tooth and nail” every step of the way. Even as a young boy, I knew if the Reverend King died from an assassin’s bullet. “All Hell Would Break Loose.” I was right.

 

Five days of race riots broke out in Washington D.C. The evening news reported riots in other American cities like Chicago and Baltimore for several days after King’s assassination.

 

King, a Baptist preacher, had made some powerful enemies. He was assassinated. Riots destroyed American businesses, homes and people died in the social change process that would move America beyond the policy of segregation

 

The irony is in 2013, people get the legal holiday of Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday “off from work” and few, if any, stop to consider the meaning of the legalized birthday holiday.

 

General Washington’s Birthday

 

When I was a little boy General George Washington’s Birthday on February 22 was a legal Federal United States holiday.

 

When I was a little boy Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday on February 12 was a legal Federal holiday.

 

Americans got two legal Federal “days off from work with pay” in the short month of February.

 

The Lame

President’s Day

Birthdays

American leaders in the 1970s decided it would be better to “prostitute all the presidents’ birthdays together” and celebrate one holiday for all of them called “President’s Day.”

 

Thus, Americans could honor a creative, revolutionary Renaissance Man like General George Washington, but the day got diluted with the inclusion of Loser Lincoln the political patsy and pawn of The American Civil War.

 

Even President Herbert Hoover, the portly president could be honored on “President’s Day.” Hoover’s presidential incompetence during The Great Depression may always be debated by historians.

 

Portly, Porky President Herbert Hoover is on the public record, of giving “The Order” to the use of United States Armed Forces against World War I military veterans.

 

Republican Herbert Hoover gave “The Order” to use “military force against his own citizens,” which kicks him to the historical curb next to Dictators Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Emperor Hirohito, Saddam Hussein.

 

Why would any American want to celebrate “President’s Day” when one of the historical honorees is a incompetent politician who “authorized” the use of military force to “put down” or “kill off citizens’ who made the leader uncomfortable?

 

I always took “the work day off”, but Republican Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan are the only Republican presidents that I respect and acknowledge their birthdays.

 

Most of America’s Republican presidents I view as “Crooks”.

 

I cuss and curse American Republican Presidents, but I will never “celebrate, observe or honor the dismal days they took their first breath of air.”

 

The bad thing about America’s “Presidents’ Day” is it lumps American Democrat Presidents’ birthdays together with the birthdays of the Republican “Crooks”.

 

Thus, Your Birthday in the future could easily get dumped into a national observance of some of “the biggest crooks that ever lived” if you ever get elected to The White House.

 

There are 365 days in a year. The number of days in a leap year is 366. As time goes by and more people get elected to the Office Of President Of The United States Of America, each person will have their own birthday.

 

Already more than 40 people have served as president of the United States and the number approaches 50; which means at some point if every presidential birthday was a “legal holiday”, then, the time would come when people could legally take off 365 to 366 days and the result is no one would work for a year.

 

American Presidents are controversial in their Administrations and often the place they earn in history.

 

I believe Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday should always be celebrated as “National Fool’s Day”, instead of “April Fools Day” on April 1.

 

Lincoln, the dumb old country boy became America’s Political Patsy and the ultimate “Sacrificial Scape Goat.”

 

Lincoln was more a political puppet of his political party and the business people, who made fortunes in the American Civil War.

 

I believe President Herbert Hoover’s Birthday should always celebrate National Toilet Tissue Month.

 

As chief executive of the United States, Herbert Hoover was “full of it.” The American economy collapsed and sucked other nations into the global economic sinkhole.

Naturally in retirement, Hoover and supporters claimed he had all these great ideas to “Stop” or “Slow” The Great Depression.

 

However, On the job, in The Oval Office, Hoover, the self-made millionaire sat on his portly rump and watched his nation “Go Broke.”

 

Hoover’s Administration, like toilet tissue served a purpose. Once used – toilet tissue becomes “waste.” The Hoover Administration was “waste”; it allowed citizens to suffer, lose their livelihoods, homes and businesses, while an incompetent politician sat on his rump, rather than take aggressive action and do what was needed to stop or slow The Great Depression.

 

Hoover had no problem giving “The Order” to use the military force of The United States Armed Forces against World War I veterans exercising Freedom Of Speech and Freedom Of Assembly; thus, he would not of lost sleep violating The Constitution Of The United States Of America to save the economy. The fact that he did not take aggressive action suggests Hoover was either a fool or had no ideas.

 

Since an American President can be such a controversial celebrity in their lifetime; Congress rather than trying to choose the birthdays of Great American Presidents to be celebrated simply decided to dump the trash in with the gold and create “President’s Day” – a really lame Federal holiday.

 

If you are a politician, then, people in your lifetime and after your death, may choose not to celebrate Your Birthday.

 

Your Birthday might even become a paid Federal holiday that people “take off” and never even consider, who you were or what you did.

 

In the present, You should always celebrate Your Birthday because everyone only gets so many birthdays, which serve as the recognized anniversary of your birth.

 

You can celebrate your birthday with a single candle on a cupcake.

 

You might be able to arrange a monumental news making celebration that has television networks on scene and people streaming the celebration to facebook, twitter, You Tube and writing about Your Birthday festivities in their blogs.

 

Regardless, of how you decide to celebrate or observe Your Birthday – you should always celebrate Your Birthday.

 

Once you die people may forget Your Birthday, worse yet they may prostitute it by combining it with a legendary collection of global fools, freaks and clowns, who should be “forgotten” and not honored.

 

The Most Special Holiday Of Your Life

 

In your lifetime, Your Birthday should be The Most Special Holiday Of Your Life because it represents the anniversary of your birth and recognizes that each passing year is bringing progressive change into your Life.

 

Whenever possible, legally take Your Birthday “off from work” to observe your special day.

 

No one really wants to work on their birthday. The day you were born, you were moving your arms, hands, legs, feet and trying to experience the new sensation of Life; you were not worried about your contribution to The Global Workforce Of Humanity.

 

Wherever you are in the world, you should always celebrate Your Birthday.

 

Different nations and cultures have different ways to celebrate Your Birthday. Whenever feasible celebrate Your Birthday your way because it is your day.

 

Why was I born on this particular day ?

 

A person’s birthday is always the most underrated day of their Life because no one really stops to consider: “Why was I born on this particular day ?”

 

There are 365 to 366 days in a year. Obviously, the intimate relationship between your mother and father led to your creation, but that is not Your Birthday because sometimes an infant is born early.

 

Sometimes an infant is born late.

 

Sometimes medical professionals from midwives to surgeons are required to bring you into The Real World to begin Your Birthday.

 

No birth is ever an “accident.”

 

The situations surrounding your birth might be unique, out of the ordinary, unusual or appear to be “unexpected” (which is a kind of silly word to use for a pregnancy, since a pregnant woman is almost always noticeably “with child”,i.e.. pregnant.).

 

The day of your birth is NOT coincidental, happenstance, chance,dumb luck, or a gamble of the flow of time, nature and biology all coming together at a precise time.

 

Every birth is monumental.

 

Every birth is unprecedented.

 

Every birth is legendary.

 

Every birth is unique because there is only one of you.

 

Even a clone is not a precise replica of a lifeform.

 

The Immortality Of A Birthday

 

Once you die, The Universe does seem to “Remember Your Birthday” because an event of your lifetime will come to light within a few days of Your Birthday.

 

The Birthday Fact tends to be noticeable in the Lives Of Famous People, who have died, but, if you will pay attention to the birthday of a Loved One in your family who has died; you should notice within a week to three days before their birthday, usually, an event or situation will happen that will tend to provide information about the person’s Life.

 

If you want to experiment with The Birthday Immortality Experiment, go online and look up Elvis Presley’s Birthday, then, research news releases and the information that came to Life, after his Death, near or on his birthday.

 

Granted, in the case of celebrities, family, friends, fans and publicists can time the release of information to coincide with a birthday.

 

Look at the event and the information that became public knowledge.

 

The revelation of information, an item, or an event around the time of a birthday is not always positive. Usually family, friends, fans and publicists release positive information;

 

Fate, The Universe, An Intelligent Universal Entity, or the progress of Time does not seem to judge Positive or Negative – the event just reveals the information, item or event and let’s people decide the classification.

 

Besides The Birthday Of Elvis Presley, research the birthdays of other famous people, who have died, and notice the revelations about their Lives that came to light, near or on their birthday. Then, you may wish to research the information within your own family. (Perhaps, at long last the family will finally discover Great Aunt Tillie’s Long Lost Jewels.)

 

Family and friends might “forget” Your Birthday.

 

You should never “forget” or “blow off” Your Birthday.

 

Your Birthday is Your Immortal Eternal Torch That Burns Unmolested Throughout The Night Of Humanity.

 

Enjoy Your Birthday !

 

There is only one of you alive at any given point in history, the present, or the future of The Universe – You are Unique.

 

Your Birthday is the Immortal Point Of Origin Of Your Existence In The Real World.

 

Always honor, observe and celebrate Your Birthday.

 

Try to make sure Your Birthday will not be “prostituted” after your death.

 

Be selective in your choice of friends that you choose to share your birthday with.

 

Christmas and all the holy days converted into holidays will probably always be observed and celebrated because human nature is always looking for a reason to party.

 

In your lifetime, there should be events and even “public” holidays that will hold a special meaning or purpose to you.

 

Enjoy your Life; observe, celebrate and honor those special days.

 

However, keep one day sacred and special in your mind and heart – Your Birthday

 

Enjoy Your Birthday !

 

Your Birthday should always be The Most Revered And Special Day Of Your Life.

 

Let me be among the first, from my place in time and space, on Your Birthday to wish you:

 

Happy Birthday !
