Is your birthday on or near Christmas Day? If so, how do you feel about it?

I'm thinking the 23rd through the 27th, for example. Our baby will be born or induced during this time period and I'm already feeling bad for the little guy. Other than the very obvious tip not to buy one gift and pass it off as being for both Christmas and birthday, do you have any advice?
What do you like and/or dislike about the timing of your birthday? Do you celebrate at a different time of year instead? Did your parents do anything in particular that made your birthday more special, or is there anything you would recommend we NOT do?
One last note, we have always opened presents on Christmas Eve night, so a Christmas birthday would not change that. If our baby is born on Christmas Eve, we'd change our tradition to doing Christmas on the morning of the 25th.
