“Christmas Ain’t About Me Anymore,” A Song About Being the Oldest

The Doubleclicks have written a song about something every older sibling whose family celebrates a big gift giving holiday has gone through at one point. Youngest siblings and only children, you might want to sit this one out. This is for the big kids.

    lol try and have your birthday on the day after christmas, no one ever celebrates it with you and barely acknowledges it.

    It can get worse- my friend has her birthday on Christmas. Her family have legitimately forgotten about it before.

    They’re doing it wrong! For us eldest children, Christmas is about getting the cool toys with multiple small pieces that the little ones want to play with, but they’re not allowed to neener neener.

    My son’s birthday is on the eve of Christmas. Our solution is to celebrate it earlier. Earlier, not later, because right after Christmas, people are all Christmas-partied out. Before Christmas, people are still in a festive mood. Then we celebrate his birthday on the day off privately–with family. :D
