Birthdays as Holy Days

A friend recently put forth an interesting idea - that she celebrates her birthday as a holy/feast day. The occasion is marked with offerings and prayers of thanks to her deities, a specially prepared meal shared with others of a similar path, and various rituals of self purification and celebration.

Does anyone else do this or something similar? Any thoughts on the celebration of one's own birthday as something sacred or holy?

I'm still chewing on this idea and still working out some conflicting feelings about it. I'd love to hear other Cauldronites take on this one.
