Birthday Shout-Outs! (12/2011)

Darling Jen Darling Jen
December 2011

Welcome to the Birthday Club’s twelveth post of birthday shout-outs! Once a month there’s a forum announcement to celebrate the birthdays of our favorite Eden Staff, reviewers, and contributors! So let the celebration begin! Thanks to the generosity of the Eden Staff, every contributor who participates in the birthday club will receive a $25 gift card for their birthday month!

If you have yet to submit your own birthday, PM or email me now! These are the only accepted forms of birthday submissions. Also, if you don’t get your birthday to me before the shout-out gets posted for your month, you will not be mentioned in the post and are ineligible for the GC that month. But don’t worry! You’ll be in my records when your birthday comes around again!

If you LOVE Eden for giving you $25 gift card birthday presents and if you LOVE celebrating birthdays together as a community then Support the Birthday Club! I'm looking for a little community participation as I begin to plan and design the birthday format for 2012. Whoever provides the best/ most useful/ most inspiring Birthday Club idea for next year will be given a $5 GC from me directly. That's for you to use on your next order - whether it's your birthday or not! The theme is – What would get you more involved with the club? What else would you want to learn in the posts?

There will be only one winner, they will be decided by me alone, their idea will be incorporated in the Birthday Club format for 2012 with creative licensing, and entries will need to be submitted to me by PM or email ONLY. The deadline is now December 15th and you need to include your username in the email (not necessary if you PM instead).

“Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.”

Birthstone – Blue Topaz
Zodiac Sign (November 22nd – December 21st) – Sagittarius

Sagittarius

Under the ruling planet of Jupiter, this is a fire sign of the zodiac, symbolized by the centaur archer. This is another symbol that, to me, doesn’t match the element. You’re so optimistic and jovial that it at times sickens your friends. But it usually just makes you one awesome friend to have around as company. Just be aware that it can also sometimes cause you to be so blind and careless as well that you become a bit, well, irresponsible.

Your spirit and ambition is strong and you rarely back down or allow your hopes to be dashed by something being difficult. Power to you! You also love to side with the underdog in any fight and probably find yourself being an activist for something or another. You also tend to be religious and very moral. But you often overemphasize the codes and ritual more than the truths or feelings that the religion embodies. You may be only paying lip service and won’t hesitate much in switching allegiances, religious, political, etc. Some introspection into what you really believe could be eye-opening. But all in all, you are a cheerful, reliable, honest, and hilarious person!

Your main colors are blue and purple. The physical body parts that correspond to your sign (yes, the zodiac has body parts too) are the liver, hips, and thighs. These may be areas of importance to you or areas you experience chronic issues with. Your flowers are the wallflower, dandelion, narcissus, lime flower, and carnation. Some famous Sagittarians include Harpo Marx, Akbar the Great, Joseph Conrad, John F. Kennedy, Tina Turner, Dick Van Dyke, Mark Twain, Winston Churchill, Margaret Mead, Emily Dickenson, Jane Austen, and Sammi Davis Jr.

If you’re at the tail end of the month and don’t fall under this sign, no frets! We can’t do repeats for every month so you’ll have to refer back to January 2011. But also keep in mind that the closer you are to another sign in birthday, the more characteristics you share with them.

This Month in History:

New Years – The celebration of a brand new year didn’t always start with January 1st (and in many cultures, still doesn’t). So here is a very quick and fun history of just some of the examples!The early Roman calendar designated March 1st as the start of the new year. The calendar actually had just ten months, beginning with March. That the new year once began with the month of March is still reflected in some of the names of the months in English. September through December, our ninth through twelfth months, were originally positioned as the seventh through tenth months (septem is Latin for "seven," octo is "eight," novem is "nine," and decem is "ten”). The first time the new year was celebrated on January 1st was in Rome in 153 BC (In fact, the month of January did not even exist until around 700 BC) The new year was moved from March to January because that was the beginning of the civil year, the month that the two newly elected Roman consuls began their one-year tenure. But this new year date was not strictly and widely observed and the new year was still sometimes celebrated on March 1. It wasn’t until Julius Caesar himself decreed in 46 BC that the new year would be celebrated henceforth on January 1st permanently. But not to make it more complicated, but it was abolished for a time in the Middle Ages for being paganistic. Not to worry though because the party was restored in 1582 with the Gregorian calendar reform!

And there’s your very brief history of why we get hammered and stay up till midnight waiting for a glittery ball to drop. Well, sorta.

December 1, 1640 – A nationalist revolution in Portugal that resulted in the independence from Spain after the Spanish garrisons were driven out of Portugal.

December 1, 1822 – Dom Pedro, founder of the Brazilian Empire, was crowned as the first emperor of Brazil.

December 1, 1918 – Iceland was granted independence by the Danish parliament.

December 1, 1919 – Nancy Astor became the first woman in the British House of Commons.

December 1, 1988 – Benazir Bhutto was nominated to become prime minister of Pakistan, the first woman to govern a Muslim nation.

December 1, 1989 – Mikhail Gorbachev became the first Soviet Russian leader to visit the Vatican and meet the Pope, thus ending 72 years of strict atheist policy in Communist Russia.

And that's why we have April Fool's Day, too---people who forgot that they'd already had New Year's Eve back in January and partied on the last day of March looked pretty foolish when they went to work hungover for no reason!

Happy birthday to everybody this month

Happy Birthday fellow Decemberians! Wow, I didn't even know we got gift cards for our birthdays, that is awesome!

I am planning a surprise package for my wife to give to her on our vacation in a few weeks and the extra $25 will allow me to pack her some more goodies in there! Do the GCs come in the mail or email? I am wanting to place the order as soon as possible, when can I expect it?

Thanks, Darling Jen! You have put a lot of effort into this.

Maybe we should ask a Novemberite? I'm planning a big order next week, and since we get a gift card for our birthdays (how cool is that!?) I'd be glad to know if I should plan to use it in that order, or later on.

If this is your first time reading the birthday shout-outs, then perhaps you're not sure when the gift cards are sent out. But every single other post (since I could fit it into those) explains that they are emailed out once a week for the birthdays contained in that week. Please don't get impatient and overwhelm people's inboxes asking about them. Just hold your horses and wait a while. You're always welcome to ask someone that was in the last month as well.

But I recommend 1. patience and 2. reading the birthday shout-outs of all months! Not just the one you're in.
