A special occasion that comes around every year, without fail, whether we want it or not, is our own birthday. We all have one, some celebrate it more than others. Some of us derive even more pleasure from helping others celebrate their birthday by giving them a little gift in the form of a birthday present.
Why do we celebrate birthdays?
Historically, celebrating birthdays was almost incomprehensible. There was no way to accurately calculate a full year prior to the calendar being created. The passing of time judged to the day was not deemed particularly vital in everyday life and as a result celebrating birthdays was almost impossible. With the invention of the calendar new traditions formed and celebrating birthdays became possible. Celebrating birthdays in the past was nothing like it is today. The idea of one’s birthday was taken more as a form of protection rather than celebration. It was believed that a significant occasion such as a birthday symbolised a major change, because of this major change period, evil spirits would be attracted to the person. Therefore, to counteract the evil spirits it was believed that by celebrating and lighting up candles it would deter evil, and the person would have a peaceful year.
In our current times birthday celebrations have become all about the person gaining another year of maturity and experience. It is a celebration in which family and friends get together and celebrate a day which marks another year of life together. Gifts are given to show one’s valuing of the person whose birthday it is and to mark the day. I am sure that in the future birthday celebrations will evolve and become different again to what we know now. However, the principle of celebration will surely remain the same and the person whose birthday it is will remain the centre of birthday celebrations.
