This is a bit late, but I hope you passed the day well.

Thanks, Liam! Yes, the day went well, praise be to God. I don't really celebrate the Prophet's (pbuh) birthday, because there's no record of him celebrating it himself, but I did keep him in my thoughts and prayed for him. Even if one doesn't actively "celebrate" the day through eating sweets, etc., it's a good opportunity to think about the Prophet's example and find inspiration in his life story.

Something Even More Magical
