We all have many things on our plates and sometimes important dates and events just get lost in the commotion.
It's not that we're unaware of the birthday date, it's just that often we don't know what today's date is...
Forgetting a birthday is, in some families, a cardinal sin. That's why lots of people enjoy MyHeritage's birthday reminders via email as well as site notifications.
Has it ever happened to you? If so, how did you rectify it? Let us know in the poll and comments section below.
It's fun asking people to whom they'd like to be related. Many people answer with a celebrity's name or someone they admire.
I asked our MyHeritage colleagues this question. Their replies included Anne Frank, French resistance fighter Jean Moulin and Albert Einstein.
