My 20th is this Saturday. I haven't celebrated since my 12th. Is it even worth celebrating?

#2 Posted by Pyrogram (41269 posts) - - Show Bio

Yes

"Worth" is subjective. It all depends on the person. I believe birthdays are definitely worth celebrating. Whether others do is up to them.

@cyberchop979: Yeah I'm kind of putting the question out there for feedback of other peoples experiences. I have never celebrated my adulthood, and I just want to know if its worth it. Just one night of letting loose.

EDITED

I think so.

I'd be interested in why you wouldn't want to?

Celebrating birthday I guess can be see as healthy as it reminds yourself that you're of value and importance to the world. Also, it's always nice to have an excuse to Paaaartayyy.

Yes. You have survived 20 years. That is a big deal

Yeah. So many people so unhappy with their lives, at least dedicate one day of your life to just being happy. So why not make it the day you're born?

Free cake and present's. One of my Achilles heels. Another being hearing boogie woogie and simply not being able to resist the fire of dance inside of me!

I don't know, i never really feel like celebrating my birthday and when i do, it's for friends/family to make them feel better. I just feel like a birthday is an obligation for someone else to do something for me. So i prefer it if they just throw a random party on a random day so i know it's something they actually enjoy? I guess i'm just weird like that. Haha

Birthdays are worth celebrating if the birthday person wants to celebrate it. For me, I plan to lose my mind on my birthday and hopefully I will forget most of it. Last year, it passed with no fanfare, which was perfect. No hard and fast rule. :)

People are worth celebrating, all the time, every time. Birthdays, like Christmas, and other occasions, whether they be novel and random, or consistent and expected can sometimes allow a person to be a bit more courageous about showing love, warmth and appreciation to others. Birthdays are a pretty cool time to show appreciation for a friend, then again why wait for a persons Birthday to do that? I guess it depends on the person, I feel like I would freak out most of my friends if I told them how much I care about them so I usually wait until their birthdays for that kind of sentimental crap. =p

Then again I have only actually experienced one celebratory Birthday type Birthday thing for myself since I was like 2 so.

It depends on the person.There are people that just don't like celebrating their birthdays due to some reasons they believe in (like:getting old,spending too much money and etc.) but there are people like me who just can't skip the celebration.I tried one year to skip my birthday and just do almost nothing and after that I was really sad that I didn't manage to celebrate with my friends or family.

I haven't genuinely celebrated my birthday in years. It's hard to do on December 25th so I just gave up. Though I am eyeing some some Jeff Lemire art to buy myself this year on my birthday.

They're fun. That's enough, isn't it?
