Good morning to you,
Amusement parks and all the attractions they offer such as go karts, mini golf, arcade games, laser tag, rock climbing, bumper boats and rides provide hours of fun that really appeals to the tween and teen market. The activities here are considered cool, lots of fun and definitely age appropriate when planning kids birthday parties. Its also not every day that you get to drive go karts or ride bumpers boats with your friends, so an amusement park setting is definitely a unique choice when it comes to birthday party places.
If you are putting together a birthday party in your home, decorate the place to the nines, with intertwined rolls of crepe paper hanging from the rafters, and with three-foot high letters spelling out Happy Birthday! stretched across the room. Decorate the party table with colorful paper plate and cups and napkins, just for the sheer cheerfulness of the things.
Happy Birthday To You, the birthday song heard the world over, is actually protected by copyright. Quite how they manage to enforce this is beyond me for such a massive worldwide song. Apparently the birthday song brings in around $2 million a year in royalties from publishing rights (which is owned now by Summy-Birchard, a company under the AOL Time Warner umbrella who paid $25 million for the company which was then called Birch Tree and then changed to Summy-Birch).
All Season, All Weather Fun
So there you have it, who would have thought that a song intended as a simple greeting would turn into a worldwide phenomenon.
