A Golden Birthday!
When your date of birth is the same as your age, it is known as the Golden Birthday! E.g. - You turning 18 on the 18th (of any month).
Regardless of who we are and what we've accomplished, birthdays can make us feel like a child all over again. Growing up, we try to make this day special as compared to any other day. However, as responsibilities pile on, somewhere the spirit to go out there and do something fun diminishes. But we are here to tell you, it's never too late to begin. After all, it's your birthday!
Activities to Make Your Birthday Extra Special
One of the most important things to do while deciding what to do on your birthday is plan ahead of time. If you wish to spend time with family and friends, you need to make sure they're available for the day. Also, it is a good practice to have a budget and then finalize the activities you wish to accomplish. Below, you'll find some of our suggestions. Take a look.
Do Your Bucket List
One month or ten days prior to your birthday, start making a bucket list for yourself. Write down things you've always wanted to do in the order of 'must accomplish' to "can do it any other day". Gather friends and/or family members, and spend the day doing the things from your list.
Arrange a Sleepover
Arrange a sleepover, with a twist. The sleepover will last for the entire day where your friends, along with you, can relax, enjoy, and unwind. Rent DVDs and have a movie marathon, get takeout or cook at home with everyone, play video games or indoor games, drink (only for adults) and gossip, and dance till your feet hurt.
Select one or more things to do on your birthday and take tons of pictures. You can print out your favorite pictures and make a yearly album of memories. As the years go by, you'll have loads of memories to share with family and friends.
