When she arrives, though, she finds a whole new darkness lurking in this City of Light…

    I don’t really have any birthday traditions anymore, but when I was younger my family would always take me out to eat at my favorite restaurant. Nothing too exciting 🙂

    For some reason, we always seem to end up in West Wales for my birthday, no matter how differently we plan it. Luckily, my MIL lives there, so we just throw clothes in the car, and up and leave, and I get waited on hand on foot (which isn’t any different to any other time there, but it being my birthday means I can demand more from my husband), and then it’s a couple of days of beach visits and coastal walks, and good eating. 😀
    Happy birthday, Susan.

    My birthday tradition is to take an exam because my birthday always falls on an exam date… 😛

    Now that’s not really romantic, so I guess my real birthday tradition is to go out for dinner with the family. 😀

      My birthday often falls on exams too! But hey, exams only last forever if you’re a student forever so you’ll make it out!

      My family’s tradition is to leave up the “Happy Birthday [insert name here]” sign up until the next family birthday. I hget the biggest gap so my sign gets to be up the longest.

    Happy Birthday! Can’t wait for the sequel! Have been forcing Book 1 on everyone pitching it as the Corsets and Zombie Book. So far much success has been had. I tend to go out for a nice dinner with my family on my Birthday, though harder since I don’t live at home anymore. The one year that got missed I had to spend my Birthday on a Saturday Working at an English Country House in the middle of nowhere with no phone connection. Zipped back into London and my phone was full of texts and my BFF made me food. That was a nice one in spite of the break in Tradition 🙂

    I am lame and stopped having birthday traditions as I got older. However as kids since my brother’s birthday is only 6 days before mine, we usually had combined parties. How mortifying as a teen! Now I think back and laugh at myself. It wasn’t that bad 🙂

    Here, what I usually send to my friends on their bdays:

    May your troubles be less,
    May your blessings be more,
    May nothing but happiness
    Walk through your door.

    Happy bday! Hope it’s fantastic. <3

    We always get cake of course, but I always request that instead of having “Happy Birthday Jill!” drawn on in frosting, that we have something completely ludicrous written on it to give the cake decorators a laugh. Last year it was: “Monkeys are cool!”

    *Gasp* I so want this!

    At my house, the birthday person gets to choose where we all go out to eat. Then we do brownies and ice cream (since no one here likes cake) and presents. I have a group of 8 friends and we go all-out for birthdays, so after the family celebration is done, they come over and give the gift they’ve been planning for weeks. It’s always epic, and a blast!

    My birthday falls around Memorial Day, so for quite a few years we were going to a jazz festival–not because that’s what I wanted to do, but because that’s when the festival happened. Now I try to circumvent that by planning a trip (usually to the coast) for my birthday.

    I have 5 siblings so it’s always a race to see who will be the first one to wish the birthday person Happy Birthday. They don’t win anything except bragging rights, since they remembered the person’s birthday first.
    When I was younger we got to skip doing chores for the day.

    This year (ten days ago!), I spent my first birthday away from home after moving to California. I’m used to cold winter days in North Dakota. We would gather all our friends together, and my husband would make me a themed cake. One year was Stargate ice cream cake, a chocolate Serenity spaceship from the show Firefly, and replicas of our kitties’ faces. Always something to look forward to, despite the snow!

    This year, two of my best friends came to visit me. We went to Disneyland where I wore my birthday pin (two days early since I wanted to meet Shannon Hale). So, that might be a new tradition. We went to the beach and spent most of the day outside with no long sleeves. That could also be a new tradition. I had my milkshake before my meal. That could be the new tradition, too. I’m excited to find out!

    We shall see.

We always go out to lunch and from there we do something else, go to a movie, go to the beach, ect.

    My most persistent birthday tradition has been having the Seafood Delight platter at my favorite hole-in-the-wall seafood restaurant with my family, with a finish of on-the-house cheesecake. Healthy eating dictates we only eat there once a year, so why not make it on my birthday, to make it extra awesome?

    Well for every birthday we just call each other and sing happy birthday. I have a big family and we are very close, so everytime we get a lot of calls. Also, if we all happen to reunite for that special day, we just go out to eat and celebrate! This has been a tradition of ours since we each built our own lives apart. 🙂 We as a family have always believed in finding a way/ time, to reunite even if we have build our lives far away from each other. 😀 Thank you for this opportunity, I am really looking foward to the new book coming out and sending best wishes your way on your Birthday Mrs. Susan. 🙂

    Birthday tradition? Doing sometime active and different — a change of pace. When I was 14, I chartered a Cessna to fly me around my neighborhood and surrounds. When I was 30 and again at 55, I went horsepacking. When I was 50 I went backpacking with my son and his friend into the Mokelumne Wilderness. For my 58th (most recent) I went on a girls’ trip to Ireland with my sister and niece!

    Have a wonderful birthday and many more! Don’t look at it as getting older, but yet another year for all your friends to have enjoyed your visit on earth!

    I don’t have a tradition. Either I’ll do something with family or I’ll do something with friends but it doesn’t matter all too much to me. I’ve already hit the big “21” and all the birthdays that have followed are just … not milestones. I always hope by my next birthday I’ll have a lit agent and a book deal, though 🙂

    I CAN NOT WAIT for A Darkness Strange & Lovely. Something Strange & Deadly was one of my absolute favoriate book of 2012. I did the love match quiz, turns out I’m either fit for Eleanor or Joseph. No offense to Joseph, but I think I’d rather have a talk with Elanor. She’s just so awesome.

    First, Happy Birthday! I swear I almost passed out when I saw this, your awesome second book that doesn’t come out for five months?! Um, yes please!

    Ok, so my birthday tradition is allowing my self to go to book stores and let loose, I try to temper my book buying for the rest of the year but on my birthday I give myself a budget of $100 to spend on books. My birthday is actually in 13 days and the best present ever would be an ARC of this book I really want by Susan Dennard *nudge, nudge, wink, wink, nudge, nudge* Ahem, just so you know.

    Back before I moved overseas, it was a tradition between my friends and I to hit downtown and hop around restaurants/desserteries/etc and trying just one thing at each stop, then moving onto the next, rather than buying full meals. They only did this for my birthday because they knew I was the only one who’d be adventurous enough to do something like this, and even though it’s exhausting, they knew it made me happy 🙂

    I don’t really have any birthday traditions! I suppose we do go out to eat to celebrate, but that’s about it. I generally celebrate my birthday doing something fun with my friends.

    I don’t really have any birthday traditions. I just make it a point to go to lunch with my mom sometime during the week.

    This contest comes at perfect timing! My birthday is next week on March 13th! It would be awesome if I won a book for my birthday! My families birthday tradition is the birthday girl gets to choose where they want to go for dinner. That means anywhere you can possibly think of. I’m still unsure what I’ll pick for this year.

    Thank you so much for the chance to win!

    Happy Birthday!
    We always go out to eat for birthdays. We usually try to combine the event since my dad’s birthday is two weeks after mine.

    I always take the day off on my birthday. No school, no work, nothing. It is MY day to do whatever I want. I go out, or just go to the beach, or buy something new. Its tradition every year…

    For someone in my family’s birthday ever since I was little and my birthday present didn’t come in the mail on time for my actual birthDAY my parents decided we would have a birthday WEEK. No extra stuff just the fun of saying ‘It’s my birthday week!’ And birthday week calories don’t count which is a big plus.

    I don’t really have any traditions for my birthday. My hubby takes me out for a date night and my folks have us and our family up for a pool party. That is all that I need. My family!
