Are you lucky enough to have a summer birthday? They're pretty sweet if I say so myself.

For all of you out there who don't have summer birthdays, you don't know what you're missing...so I'm going to take a moment to tell you.

First off, summer birthdays allow you to get gifts from loved ones throughout the year (Christmas, birthday, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day/Father's Day) so you get the joy of opening presents all year long and it's awesome.

Secondly, what better way to spend your birthday than spending a day out on the lake or grilling out in your backyard with all your friends and favorite summer brew? That's right, nothing. Summer birthdays win yet again.

And lastly, when you're a kid with a summer birthday you never have to go to school on your birthday. No body can tell you that you'll have to take a test or turn in homework on your special day. And you just really can't beat that feeling.

So next time you're thinking about your birthday, think about how cool it would be to have a summer birthday.
