Birth-Day

Additional Links
The observance of birth-days was common in early times (Job 1:4,13,18 ). They were specially celebrated in the land of Egypt (Genesis 40:20 ). There is no recorded instance in Scripture of the celebration of birth-days among the Jews. On the occasion of Herod's birth-day John the Baptist was beheaded (Matthew 14:6 ).
