- "Jacen and I have been trying to come up with just the perfect gift for Mom's birthday."
- ―Jaina Solo
Birthdays were anniversaries celebrated by beings, particularly Humans, on the day of their births. A party was generally held on said day. People often gave special gifts to the person celebrating their birthday. One example of this was during the Rebellion Era, the Ewok princess Kneesaa a Jari Kintaka received her ruling staff on her birthday from her father, Chief Chirpa. On that day Chirpa had chosen Kneesaa as the future Chief of their Ewok tribe, and the staff symbolized this. Another example was, in 24 ABY, Jacen and Jaina Solo traveled to the Graveyard of Alderaan to get a piece of asteroid for their mother's forty-third birthday. Examples of birthdays are Luke and Leia's birthday, which occoured on the 24th day of the 5th momth or the Great ReSynchronization (one day after the Empire Day), Anakin's birthday, which occoured on the fourth month of the Great ReSynchronization, and Palpatine's birthday, which occoured on the 11th day of the 8th month of the Great ReSynchronization.
