Two birthdays every year?

Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her birthday in April on the anniversary of the day she was born, but she’s celebrating again in June with an “official” birthday.

The tradition of two birthdays started in 1748 with George II, who was born in November. He decided that November was too cold for his annual birthday parade.

I’m not sure about a parade, but two celebrations every year sounds like a great idea to me. We just had a birthday lunch for Ranna, Fayteen’s daughter, and Fayteen and I have birthdays this summer. Why not celebrate everyone’s birthday twice?

It’s important to note that Queen Elizabeth is up to a big celebration. Yes, she’s 90 now, but she “carried out” 341 engagements last year.
