I could have sworn I read where they do not celebrate birthdays or holidays. Well, thanks for the correction. I may be thinking of Jehova’s. :)
In a magazine interview Obama and his wife Michelle revealed that one of their steadfast house rules is not giving Christmas or birthday presents to Malia, 10, and Sasha, seven.
The Obama's celebrate the days (apparently) but do not give gifts. The question then is: Do Muslims give birthday presents?
I don't know the answer.
We have a Muslim woman temporarily living in the house we’re trying to sell. She always brings us things for holidays. She insisted on coming over late the night she remembered it was my birthday to bring me a gift. It’s possible that different Muslim countries celebrate differently. She even came over for Christmas dinner.
