Incorrect Sentence :


My birthday is coming next month.





Correct Sentence :


My birthday falls in the next month.


The phrase 'is coming' is used to indicate an object / person, which is currently approaching you. For example, 'The car is coming in our direction at a really high speed'.


To indicate events / occasions that are likely to/scheduled to occur in the future, but refer to an event of regular occurrence, one uses 'falls in'. Therefore, while one can use 'falls in' for birthdays / anniversaries etc., one would not use it to refer to a meeting/marriage date etc.
