Happy Birthday To Who? Happy Birthday To You!

It is a new year and with that comes all new birthdays and hearing happy birthday the entire day. Many people begin to ponder why they need to have a birthday, or why people celebrate birthdays. It is important to celebrate yourself and value your life and celebrating your birthday helps that happen. Throughout the year, we push ourselves through difficult times and endure stressful situations. At some points you may even think about why you are going through all this. When you are able to celebrate yourself, even just for one night a year, it can help you relax and enjoy some of the smaller things in life. According to On With Now, you should celebrate your birthday because everyday is a special gift, let alone every year. Every day people are born and every day people die; to be one of the people gifted with another day is a miracle in itself and to start out the new year, we could all use a little celebration. On your birthday make sure you enjoy every “Happy Birthday” you get.

Some of the biggest birthday bash ideas are laser tag, camping, themed parties, and surprise parties. Laser tag birthdays are the best way to get out and run off any extra energy you have, or if you have kids you can use this idea form them to get all there friends together and not worry about the extra energy in the room. Camping parties are great for the birthday person who loves the outdoors, it gets them out where they feel relaxed and they get to spend their time with friends. Themed parties are great for the adult birthdays in our life and can show the fun side in all your friends.

Any of these parties will get the person being celebrated plenty of “Happy birthday!” love through out the night.
