Not attending a birthday party

Q: My husband and his family do birthdays and anniversaries. I do not want to celebrate my daughters birthday because it will then happen every year. She is just a baby. This however causes friction in the family. What do I do?

A: Don't attend the function.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
