Wow.  At least you gave her some special attention.  I too was born on
Dec. 26th and I never got that or even a birthday party.  When I was a kid, I got from my relatives, "Here is your Christmas present.  Oh, yeah.  Tomorrow is your birthday isn't it?  Well this is your birthday present also."  My parents would give me presents on the 26th and I got a cake, but it was just me, my brother and my parents.  The rest of the family was too busy to bother, even my godfather, who was also my uncle.
