Birthday Blues are definitely a thing! And historically, Soda hates to celebrate his birthday

Another day older… Yay… It can understandably get a bit repetitive and also, remind you of a ton of things you said you were going to achieve, but didn’t… It sounds sad, but I’m sure there’s plenty of things you’re thankful for choosing not to do last minute.

There’s a cure to this though, Cake! And that’s what we got for Soda…

Listen to how it went…

Birthday parties are all about inviting many people and loud music, which some people don’t like since not everyone likes big social gatherings.

#9 – It comes at a bad time for them

Some people may not like celebrating their birthday if it reminds them of a certain bad event that happened on the same day such as the death of someone close.

#10 – They don’t like fake sentiments

Birthdays nowadays have become a show of fake sentiments due to social media networks. People on Facebook often receive birthday wishes from people they no longer talk to, for example, which some might find as an insincere gesture.
