No. Birthdays aren't religious celebrations, they're cultural ones.

EDIT:

one person can say yes, and another person can say no. it all depends on how you look at it. in The Bible there were only two mentions of birthdays. the birthdays were celebrated by people who were pagan. so if you are looking at it from that point of view, yes it is pagan. like the person who answered above, you may believe that it is cultural. so the answer can go both ways.

Doesn't a persons lifestyle or cultural traditions they celebrate affect his/her religion and spirituality?

Why were the pagan gods still so appealing?

Even after the public worship of pagan gods was banned in 391 CE, many people of the Roman Empire continued to worship them in private. In fact, the worship of pagan gods continued for at least another 200 years. People were willing to risk persecution and death to worship the gods they believed in, so they had more than just superficial appeal. To those who rejected Christianity and continued to worship the ancient gods, they offered the only genuine chance for a life after death. The gods could assist in time of trouble and provide comfort in time of need.
