Content

All around the world, children look forward to their special day and celebrate growing another year older with the people they are closest to. But why do we commemorate birthdays? What is so special about the day, and why do we blow out candles? This book explores how birthdays are celebrated at home and at school, as well as widespread traditions such as eating cake, unwrapping gifts, and singing birthday songs. Some cultures and countries have different traditions around birthdays. And finally, it is fun to make other people’s birthdays special, too, perhaps by making them a card or present.
