Two fold. Accounts of birthday celebrations in the Bible are Pharoah &
Harod and since they were wicked-- birthdays are bad! 

Also, there is a Bible verse that talks about how we should only honor
God. Birthdays are bad because they honor people when all honor should
only go to God.

Isn't that just stupid?
