ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the hobby of the author's mother to record the birthdays of other people. She started her lifelong hobby of remembering her friends' birthdays at the age of 16. When she got married at 20, her mother-in-law gave her a small book to record the names and birthdays she had learned in south India, where she and her husband would serve as missionaries for 25 years. Every year she would send cards, call her friends and sing them her rendition of "Happy Birthday."
