My sister-in-law's birthday is on Halloween. Their anniversary is also on Halloween. I cannot understand why they chose this day to get married. It seems to me that you've got this holiday that's stealing your thunder. I also feel sorry for folks who have birthdays really near Christmas. I bet they got cheated as kids in the gift department. The folks in this situation that I've confronted on the matter usually say 'it makes the day more special' but I remain sceptical.
