簡介

Go Super to Listen Go Super!

When you’re a kid, every birthday is a big deal. But as you get older, some birthdays seem more important than others. Twenty-one is an important birthday in the US, because that’s when it’s finally legal for you to drink alcohol. Thirty is another year that people like to go all out for. On the other hand, even some adults feel that every birthday is a milestone.

In Brazil to reach 18 years old is a big deal. You are permitted to do things by law like driving, work and drink alchol. People celebrate a lot because you turned in an adult.

In my country for girls to reach 15 years is an important event  . Parents go all the way  to celebrate  their  daughters  birthday.  Usually , one year or more in advance they start paying  off salon and  catering costs  ,so expensive is to invite to the banquet all family members and daughter´s  friends. What is happening now is that girls  prefer instead of a   birthday party  a trip to Disneyworld .  Definitely, times are changing .

The most important birthday in my country Philippines is the 1st, 7th and 18th birthday. We usually have big celebration and party. for me every birthday is special and memorable and we should always be thankful to God. I used to celebrate my birthday at home and with my family. I used to have simple party at home but it is always special for me because my whole family is always there to celebrate with me. :)


To all the people who have their birthday today Happy birthday and God bless! mwah: )

i think the most important birthdays are the first 1-10 i mean when we step our first steps in life and grow up front of your parents eyes (we do not celebrate it in our culture) , some do celebrate it especialy new generations !


 There is another important stage starts in 18 it’s a declaration that you become mature and you should take your responsibilities and it’s consequences !

In my country (Venezuela) the people is considered older at 18 years old, and it’s cool because: You can drink, smoke and get your driver license. I’ve just turned 22 years old three days ago. Tongue out
