Birth-day

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Birth-day : The observance of birth-days was common in early times (Job 1:4,13,18). They were specially celebrated in the land of Egypt (Genesis 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 (Matthew 14:6).
