Additional Links

The only scriptural notices of birth-days being kept are in reference to Pharaoh, Genesis 40 . 20 ; and to Herod Antipas, when John the Baptist lost his life. Matthew 14:6 ; Mark 6:21 . It is thought by some that the sons of Job who feasted 'every one his day' did so on their birth-days. Job 1:4,13 . We do not read that the Israelites had any such custom; and the Preacher says the day of death is better than the day of one's birth. Ecclesiastes 7:1 .
