Overshadowed

This is Easter weekend in my church.  It is a big time for focusing on God.  Many people get all energized, and do special things, events, church ceremonies this weekend.  God is the focus.  This is all good for my church and my work.  Then comes Monday, the first day after Easter.  People are so over celebrations or they want to quietly celebrate the Easter Octave.  Unfortunately for me, this Easter Monday is my birthday, March 28.  Will anyone take note?  If I were spiritually evolved instead of a child wanting to blow out candles, I would rejoice that my day is like the empty tomb, forgotten, given the Resurrection.  Oh well, I suppose my birthday could have been Good Friday.  Then a party would really be in bad taste!
