Amusement parks offer plenty to do regardless of the time of year or weather conditions, which is a very nice perk. When planning kids birthday parties, you can not always be assured in advance what the weather conditions will be like that day. Nobody wants to get rained out if they are planning an outdoor party.
This all came to a head when Irving Berlins musical As Thousands Cheer used and didnot credit the Good Morning to All melody, the third hill sister called Jessica who administered the copyrights for her sisters filed a suit, and by being able to demonstrate concrete and undeniable similarities between Good Morning to All and Happy Birthday to You in a court of law she was able to obtain the copyright for Happy Birthday to You for her sisters as well.
My reality. Year after year after year, this never happens. You would think I would learn by now, but I still have not. I still go to bed thinking I will wake up and feel older, wiser, smarter... something. I never do. I guess this is where my birthday disappointment begins. To be honest, I do not recall having any excellent dreams the night before my birthdays. If I do, they have never been fulfilled. In all of my birthdays, none of them have consisted of confetti or feeling like a Queen. I know the sun comes up every day, although I can still think, on my birthday, it came up just for me. It did not choose its color, based on my opinion. I have never received flowers or balloons on my birthday, which is sheer tragic. I have longed and desired for a surprise birthday party, but that one still has only happened in my dreams. I remember all of my friends and family birthdays but very few seem to remember mine. If they do, I do not receive a phone call. I sometimes do not get to go out to dinner for my birthday. If I do, it is the usual restaurant. The only adventure I have had is thinking about the adventure I do like to have. The last spectacular event I attended on my birthday was... well, I do not remember ever having one. I have never met the man of my dreams, although I still hold out hope. It might be interesting for all of my friends to meet. Have you ever wondered how that would be for all of your friends, whom you talk about with your other friends, to meet? I have never received a toast or a letter in any capacity, although the thought is a nice one.
Yet for our family and friends, for our own smaller, private worlds of kinship and friendship, our presence can be felt and our absence missed. Thus we celebrate the anniversaries of our own and of our loved one is births with very personal celebrations. We may just spend time together on those special days, or perhaps renew our bonds with a larger circle of relations and acquaintances. Either way, though, we like to just plain have a good time on birthdays, and why not? The world finds the time to mark all manner of occasions, both big and small, both global and national, so why not mark our personal milestones as well?
This is yet another fun game. All you need to do is make an easy bean bag using double layer of poster board glued together and a large box. Then use a large box as a base, and attach the poster board to one side of it. Before attaching the poster board, paint a design on it, make one or more hole. The kids will have lot of fun throwing those bean bags. If you want you can even give bean bags as party favors.
And lastly, remember that all parties are fun and giving out gifts or party favors is a good idea. Specially if your guests are below 5 years.
