Gota'tuur (Birthday)

So today is my birthday, and now I'm wondering what the Mando's do to celebrate birth. So I created this topic to ask my question, and so people have a place to say it's their birthday.

Jate gote'tuur!
Do Mandos make a big deal of birthdays? If so why? Anyone?

From a practical viewpoint, throwing birthday parties is a waste of energy and resources.
In Triple Zero, Fi mentioned having never had a birthday celebration (though this would be impractical for clones, as so many of them share the same birthdate).

I would assume gifts may still happen, but I wouldn't expect a Mando to throw the kind of parties we see today.
However, for the last birthday party I went to, we all went paintballing. Such an activity could be incredibly useful for Mandalorians, as it is a semi-harmless activity that can help hone some (but not nearly all) of their combat skills.

Keep in mind that these are just my opinions.

I'd imagine it'd be an affair for skraan'ikase possibly, given what's seen in I believe 501st. The scene where they have a "festival" type thing and Ny makes Kal cookies and shit. If you had the time to spend on such a thing. Like I guess if it fell around a time when someone returned back to the main yaim and we weren't running off back to war or something. They're not constantly out warring, after all.

I imagine birthday/ Winter fete gifts are usually practical: new boots, shirts, maybe armour plates. Things like weddings or baby showers are specific gifts that people need.
