Just out of curiosity, would Egyptians celebrate their own birthdays? I know Pharaohs celebrated the day they became King, but what about their birthdays?

I read in one of my books that one man took a day off work to celebrate his child's b-day. And of course, you have the 5 god (Osiris, Horus, Set, Isis and Nephtys) b-day celebrations before the new year.
