I only celebrated my birthday party once in my life.I did remember all the details about this party.I reveived a birthday cake and other presents on this day.At first I did not know who send these things to me.After one hour later my ex boyfriend called me on phone and told about the presents he send to me.I was pleased to see a lovely birthday cake and some cosmetics as my first birthday presents.I will never forget that beautiful memory although he is not my boyfriend any longer.

When I was young, I used to celebrate almost every year my birthday. Now, that I am 28, I like celebrating my birthday according to my humour, for example if I prefer celebrating it with only few people I organize a party with only my besties, if, instead, i feel to celebrate with more people, i organize a party with not only my besties.

I do celebrate my birthday, but not too often.

Birthday parties are indifferent to me. I enjoy a lot more, a discreet meeting with my family and friends, or even celebrate in adventure activities with them.

I never enjoyed reaching my birthday and I never celebrated it since I was 12. The reason for this is that I become shy when everyone is there for me.

Celebrating birthdays is a habit that is effected by more than one factor. Some individuals do it because they are self-appreciated of themselves, and they want to attract others' attention. some people practice it just to comply with their community's expectations. I think that it is good to invite friends and relatives and entertain them, but not to waste a lot of money or to behave inappropriately.

No,i don’t like to celebrate birthday either.

All my life I was passionate about celebrating birthdays, but now, when I've turned 20 I no more find it as fascinating as it was several years ago. Beginning from 16 every birthday is grief for me. Of course, it's not because I'm getting older, it's merely because I don't accept it as something special, but still wait a lot of birthday wishes from my friends and family. However, now I became wiser, and low-key parties make me feel so special.

Yes. I does.
