Someone mentioned to me that Chabad are very into celebrating each birthday. Can anyone elaborate on if that's true, and if so what it entails?

I did not read the articles, so I apologize if what I say is within them.  But, obviously "celebrate" is a very subjective term.  "Observe", perhaps, would be a better term.  Fasting, or making a siyum, or going to see a gadol fir a brachah are all ways to observe one's birthday.

My source was that I heard such a shmu'ah.  But I just asked his elderly SIL (RMDT), and he said that he never heard of such a thing.  He did say that on Reb Moshe's birthday the children and grandchildren would all call up to give and receive brochos.  So I stand corrected.
