A birthday is a special day where a person gets to celebrate the date of their birth. It has always been a reserved date for my husband and I to do something that would give us a memorable day.
People all over the world will celebrate in numerous ways depending on their beliefs and cultures.
When I lived in New Zealand it was customary that the individual celebrating their birthday to buy all their friends and co-workers (if it was during a work day) morning tea. Moving to Canada it was slightly different. I was disappointed that this New Zealand tradition didn’t happen especially because I worked amongst a group of 30 people. Thinking there would be a least 1-2 sometimes even 3 morning birthdays to look forward to throughout the month.
In Canada, it is customary that friends of the person celebrating their birthday buy a drink or lunch. This meant a lot fewer celebration and no morning tea! I’m not as fond of this type of celebration here in Canada.
