In those rare times when someone remembers your birthday (I say “rare” because it seems everyone leaves it to Facebook to remember these days), they usually hit you with a “happy birthday” early in the day to show you they remembered.

Then, later in the day, maybe after dinner, you get a straggling birthday wish or two from someone you expected to hear from who probably should have known.

Those birthday wishes always seems like someone called them and told them they’d better wish you a happy birthday.

Is there a name for the point in the day when all those who remembered would have checked in, leaving only those who had to be reminded?
