Do you find it funny that classic Pathfinder sheets have "Height" and "Weight" cells, but no "Date of birth?"
Not really. Height and Weight are descriptive (and in some ways even mechanical), while date of birth isn't particularly descriptive or indicative of anything about the character, likely best kept in the general notes section of most character sheets.
If you need to know what year the character was born, most have an "Age" section cell, and you can just subtract that number from whatever the date is in the campaign setting (if your GM knows, because seriously, a lot of GMs don't; even with my own setting, I don't always take the time to decide on a specific year to start the events, but I might if the PCs were interested in that).
Related to that-have your players ever celebrated a birthday of an in-game character? If yes, how did it go? If no, what about other celebrations-new year, solstice, first day of summer?
I think we've had birthdays come up before, and I know it's been a situation that popped up for some NPCs. Celebrations and such are also fairly commonplace. In fact, in a mostly free-form Pathfinder game I've been playing some NPCs in, the characters were throwing a party for their brother and his betrothed fiance unexpectedly showed up at the party.
They currently can't seem to decide if they want her to join them, or if they want to drown her. She seems somewhat sympathetic or like-minded in some of their goals, but she's also come off to some of the players as at least a little psychopathic (score, they noticed) and she refused to doff her tannuki skin clothes at the request of one of the PCs who is a child tannuki.
