Birthday facts and information

Birthday obeys to very specific rules of civility and involves the sharing of food. A birthday is organized around four elements: presence of friends, drinks, candies and cake. Friends generally bring one or more gifts. Sugary drinks are often carbonated to symbolize the excitement of the party. Sweets are distributed profusely all day.

Candles with smoke

In average, 19.178.082 birthdays are celebrated every day.

Depending on the country, a birthday can be celebrated in different ways, although there are always common facts between these traditions. Birthday is, anyway, an important event in the life of a person. Some are more important than others (such as the 18th or 40th birthday, etc...) because they are symbolic.

A lot of people were born in the 22nd September to 5th October range. This can be explained by the fact that conception would have fallen on Christmas holiday and New Year's Eve. Maybe Champagne is not faultless...
