Birthdays are special days or occassion which actually calls for celebration. It is so because it is the exact day on which we were born onto the land of the living. But because it is a special day to us, we get carried away by certain things that can even lead to our deaths.

With that been said, you should bear in mind it is not everyone who dies or fall sick on their birthday because it is unusual.
