You could definitely be asked about birthdays on your IELTS Speaking test.

For instance, in Speaking Part 1:

1. What do people do on their birthdays in your country?

2. What do children do on their birthdays in your country?

3. What gifts do you give children/adults on their birthdays in your country?

4. How important are birthdays as you grow older?

Also, in Part 2, you could be asked to describe your favorite birthday.

In Part 3, you could discuss the cultural significance of marking our birthdays.

Keep in mind that, as these questions are closely related to culture and country, you may need to think of more specific vocabulary for your own answers.
