    A few days ago it was my cousins birthday - on the very same day, 13 years ago, her sister passed away so they don't tend to celebrate it on the day. I reminded my family that it was her birthday, and they told me not to wish her a happy birthday on that day as they don't celebrate but by that point I already had done. I hadn't forgotten that it was the anniversary of my cousins (her sisters) death, but I thought since its her birthday she deserves, at the very least, a birthday wish. I feel kinda bad now, and I don't want her to think that I forgot. Was I in the wrong?

    I don't think you were in the wrong. It's nice to know that someone remembered your birthday even if you don't celebrate it. Unless she herself has specifically told no one to mention it on the day, then you just did what you thought was right and you shouldn't feel bad for that.
