Good morning to all.
So how did this song end up having its lyrics changed from a greeting to a birthday song? The changed lyrics first appeared in a songbook in 1924, although its unknown who did this first. As radio and film were becoming very popular the song seemed to take a life of its own for a while and the melody was used on more than one occasion in films in the early 1900s.
People celebrate lots of events every year. We may celebrate religious holidays, or we may celebrate anniversaries that mark the big events in our nation is history, like the Fourth of July, or in human history, but what significance do our own birthdays have? Most of us dont change the world. Most of us do not lead noteworthy lives. We live our lives in quiet anonymity, and the world would keep on turning even if we did never been born.
Consider building an entire party around one special theme, like your child is favourite story character, or dinosaurs, or pirates, or princesses, or dragons, or any one of a thousand things. Sure, some of these may be party clichés, but kids still love them! The use of a theme can extend to the party invitations and table settings, as well as the room decorations. You can even develop party games using the same theme, and you can show a relevant movie during the party. Of course, don not forget the traditional party hats, noisemakers and party favors. You might even want to try a costume party. For example, have all of the invited kids come dressed as pirates, or as Harry Potter characters!
Being prepared before hand and doing your homework is utterly important. Before the party starts be sure to understand how the game is actually played.
