Poll: When Are You Too Old to Make a Fuss About Your Birthday?

It’s my birthday! Even though I still have to do normal grownup things like come in to work, I really have to fight the desire to wear a pink sparkly crown all day and be Birthday Princess. But at some point, doesn’t making a big deal about your birthday start to make you look immature? What do you think?

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

      I’m battling with the same thing! My birthday is a week from today, and I have to frequently stop myself from bringing it up!

      Never! I love birthdays!

      It should stop between 35 and 60. Then start celebrating again!

      Happy birthday! You are never too old to be glad you were born.

      (although on my seventeenth or eighteenth birthday I started saying ‘thank you’ to my mom)

      Happy Birthday! I voted never. I mean, you don’t have to have a gigantic party but I think everyone should do something fun for their birthday. It’s one day of the year just for you. Well, and everyone else with your birthday.

      My mom is 56 and was diagnosed with stage 4 terminal cancer when she was 32. She would tell you that we should celebrate every year that we are alive because not everyone is so lucky.

      …she was one of the lucky ones, by the way. :) I reread that and wanted to make it clear. Life is precious. Celebrate it!
