unlike every year i did not set a countdown for the d-day (i have always been an excited soul when it comes to birthdays :p). so before i realized it was friday night, my birthday eve. now generally before marriage, my family followed the ritual of calling in the birthday by cutting a cake at 12 am. however, i did acknowledge the fact that there are a few changes once you get married. so i was not expecting the 12 am celebration.
me and my husband were watching television when my sister-in-law called me telling that there is someone at the door. and then the next call was my brother's asking me to open the door. i was pleasantly surprised. my brother and sister had come all the way from gurgaon to celebrate the 12 am ritual.
