We sometimes say "He has a birthday on ...", especially if it is a special date or is coming soon. "He has his birthday on Independence Day". Of course, you can also say, "His birthday is on Independence Day".

I should explain why I asked. In our textbook there is a sentence: My mum, dad and my brother all have their birthdays in October. As I always used the verb to be here, I wonder, when I may use the verb to have. Thanks for your help.
