      n 1: an anniversary of the day on which a person was born (or the
           celebration of it)
      2: the date on which a person was born [syn: natal day]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    The observance of birth-days was common in early times (Job 1:4,
    13, 18). They were specially celebrated in the land of Egypt
    (Gen. 40:20). There is no recorded instance in Scripture of the
    celebration of birth-days among the Jews. On the occasion of
    Herod's birth-day John the Baptist was beheaded (Matt. 14:6).
