You have a 1/365 chance of scaring the hell out of the stranger and making them wonder about it for the rest of their lives

We have a custom in the Netherlands that we wish "happy birthday" to the close relatives of the "birthday victim". For example if my daughter has her birthday, some people would say to me: "happy birthday with your daughter". It is not that much said, not a custom everywhere, but you can say that without people looking surprised.

The attitude of people on special days all boils down to how the media and the controlling elites make a big deal out of that day. Maybe since they make more money "celebrating" women's day, they make a bigger deal out of it. That is why I view this gender day celebrations as hypocritical.
Hoo hoo hoo! Looks like we got a live one! Here, wave this tiny ad at it:
