|Halacha - Not so frum parents and birthdays|
|Submitted by Adi Salama Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
|Answer: According to Halacha, there is no significance in a birthday or anniversary. However if your parents want i celebrated, it is an excellent opportunity to show hakaras hatov for everything they have done. Since the date itself has no halachic significance, it is irrelevant if the Jewish or secular date is observed.
