We celebrate our birthdays because they are the anniversary of our birth. And, like all good anniversary celebrations, they should involve our family, friends and colleagues.

Birthdays celebrations traditionally involve:

  • Birthday Cards: A personalised birthday quote or greeting can turn a simple "Happy Birthday" wish into a memorable one!
  • Birthday Cake: A decorated cake covered with one candle for every year of age. Some say that is you make a wish as you blow out the candles then your wish will come true provided you keep it secret!
  • Birthday Gifts: Best friends and relatives often buy gifts to celebrate this special occasion, particularly for those milestone birthdays!

Here are my favourite birthday quotes for friends and co-workers:

"Count your life by smiles, not tears.

Count your age by friends, not years"
