Does it sound exciting to you? What could be the ways people celebrate this day around the world? Let’s find out!!
Grand Celebrations In Mexico
The one thing I have always heard about Mexican birthday parties is that they are all about fun and are filled with thrill and craziness. In the traditional language of Mexico, these parties have been called fiesta, and people celebrate these by ingesting their traditional food, ‘Tacos.’ An exciting tradition that Mexicans follow on their fiestas/birthdays is hitting the piñata. Well, it is a paper mache figure that is filled up to the brim with candies. So, a Mexican fiesta has got you covered everything, from birthday cakes to tacos to piñata. So, basically, Mexicans love celebrating fiestas in a grand manner. Also, they celebrate their 15th birthday with great pomp and show and call it a Quinceañera. Well, it is known to be celebrated when a girl completes her 15th birthday and steps towards her womanhood.
Tet Year In Vietnam
Vietnam has been the most visited country in the past decade of years by travelers. Hanoi is popularly known as the shopper’s paradise. However, did you know that Vietnam too has its own tradition of celebrating birthdays? No, right? Well, you will be shocked to know that everybody in the county does not celebrate their birthday on the day they were born, instead, celebrate their birthday collectively on Tet or New Year. Surprising, right? How good as well as strange it would be like celebrating your birthday with the whole country on New year.
Children get an advantage since they get to celebrate their birthdays buy receiving money, Li xi, also known as lucky money in red envelopes by their elders. Do you ever wish to celebrate your birthday in Vietnam in Vietnamese tradition? Ah, I would. Also, I wonder what a great sale day it is for the bakers as they have to provide cake delivery on the same day throughout the country.
Flour & Jamaica
I really wish to visit Jamaica someday since Jamaicans are known to have a great sense of humor and are very witty. They love to play around. Did you know that parents of the birthday girl or birthday boy throw flour on them while congratulating them for birthday? Can you even imagine your brown parents found that on your birthday? No, right? But hey, wait, there’s more! Water is poured on the birthday boy or girl over the flour so that the flour gets hard enough so that it does not get rid off easily. Funny, right?
Brazilians Sweet Birthdays:
Brazilian’s birthdays are nothing but an extravagant affair. The house of the birthday boy or girl is decorated with flowers, banners, and papers. An entire table is reserved for serving just the desserts (I also want to attend one Brazilian party). One more interesting trend they follow is sharing the first bite of their birthday cake with the person closest to their heart.
Sweep If You Are Single & German
If you are single and German and turn 30, then be ready to sweep the front steps of the church or Town Hall. A playful tradition where the birthday boy sweeps the floor and his friends mock him by ruining the cleaned stairs again. However, the best part is yet to come. The celebration is followed by delicious treats, a huge birthday cake, and guess what? Kids don’t even have to complete their homework.
Is it not very surprising to know the different ways in which people celebrate their birthdays? Yes, it was quite exciting for me. However, a piece of advice for all the sugar maniacs out there, why wait for a birthday? Get midnight cake delivery instantly because I know you want to have a cake right away, right?
