My nephew is having this golden birthday this year, and I was telling someone about this recently and they asked, "What is a Golden Birthday?"
I thought EVERYBODY celebrated Golden Birthdays, but apparently not!
You're golden birthday is when you turn the age of your actual birth day. For instance, I was born on the 4th of September, so I had my golden birthday bash when I was 4. I don't remember anything else about being 4, in fact the only other early childhood memory I have is my first day of school when I was 6.
However, I do remember my Golden Birthday! I got the cutest white dress with tennis rackets on it.
Can you say 70's?
Then my grandparents bought me a white rocking chair. So I sat in it, and opened my presents, presiding
like a queen over my subjects..err..I mean family. :)
In other cultures, they call it your Lucky Birthday, Star Birthday, or Champagne Birthday. I sort of like the ring of Champagne Birthday, so I've decided I'm officially celebrating my golden birthday again, but this time when I turn 44!
Hope you're enjoying your summer!
