We never did separate birthday's in my family. We actually have a six week period in January/February where there are five birthdays. We always celebrated each birthday individually. I always liked it that way. Its almost like extending the holiday season. Its nice to still have that time to come together and celebrate during the long winter months where not much else is happening. And an excuse to have cake every week doesn't hurt either.

In high school, my bf family always celebrated combined birthdays. That was the first (and only time now that I think about it) that I've known anyone to do that. Sometimes the celebration was almost two weeks after a birthday, and they would hold off on doing presents, cake, anything birthday related till the combined birthday celebration. It always seemed weird to not acknowledge someone's birthday for a week or two because Great Aunt Martha's birthday is three weeks later.
