This happens occasionally to me because my birthday is on Valentines day, and it turns out people would rather have some romantic fucking than celebrate my birthday! But FYL

Seriously. When I was a kid, my parents would always schedule my parties a week or two before my birthday, since it was always on or near Thanksgiving. OP, YDI for continuing to schedule it on the same day even though you know you're going to have cancellations.

This happens to my brother and I every year, since our birthday's are in late December (December 20th, December 31st). Most people, turns out, don't want to do anything after December 15th. And perhaps they were having a New Years/Birthday party after all. It's not always as simple as you guys are putting it. And I think you're missing the point of this FML.

I agree with #1 (and many others), try having it on a different day. I'm sure most people wouldn't mind having two party nights in a row if you decided to have it on December 30th instead.

OR have a kick ass new years and birthday party in one. Your parties must be lame. Edit: didnt see the comment above mine saying the same thing...

Agreed. My birthday is also on Dec. 31st, and there's always stuff going on. I either have it two weeks before [around the 15] or sometime the first week of January.

My problem with this whole FML is everyone wants to party on the 31st, all the OP needs to do is make his party better than the other ones going on. It's definitely a YDI, if his parties were fun then people would rather go to hers than to the New years one.

I wouldn't say op deserves it... It's not op's fault for when they were born but some people like to have birthday parties on their actual birthday.

I have my birthday in August, which is when everyone leaves for holidays out of the country. It's less extreme, but the same point. Don't do it at a time people have better things to do. You're not the center of the world.

This is a ydi and an fml cause sometimes people are just assholes. Without fail, every year, something ruins my birthday. But you should schedule a different day that there wont be a bunch of parties.

"They," can be singular or plural. The biggest bonus is its gender less, in the course of this FML, where the gender of the friend has nothing to do with the content of the FML. We have now found the underlying reason why you hate yourself. If you're thick, that means you're an idiot.

While I'm not going to say YDI, it may be in your best interest to try having the party on another day. My birthday is St. Patrick's Day and that sometimes interferes with party plans, so I'll move it to another day.

Next year, try to hold a birthday/New Year's party (a two-in-one) if you don't want to have it on another day. Win-win situation, right? That might work! :)
