It was somewhat different from prior years.
What was the same... I got email messages or mass mail cards from the usual places. Celebrating it or not celebrating it with my siblings. They let me decide if I wanted to veg or not. They're good like that. This year I did not veg. Though I nearly did.
What was different... I got lots of BD wishes from my FBers. My texters sent me wishes via Twitter *LOL* I was also somewhat surprised at some companies that sent me email or card mailing.
There was a downer, but I'll wait until Monday to see if it should be a downer. Not everyone can be on time. Though I think it will continue to be a downer. People don't change.
