8 Reasons Birthday Are The Best
Anna Vander Stel

1. It's your own personal holiday

Birthdays are designed for individuals - not groups of people. Take the day to be a little selfish and treat yo' self.



2. Guilt-free cake eating

3-layer chocolate cake with a whipped raspberry ganache frosting? On a regular, I might think twice, but since it's my birthday I'll take two slices.


3. Presents

Need I say more?

4. Excuse to dismiss yourself from regular adult responsibilities

I'm sorry I can't be in class today because I'm celebrating how awesome I am.


5. No one can protest your special day

It's not affiliated with any political party, controversial history, or opinions. It's just a day for you (and others when it's their turn).

6. Free stuff and extra savings

I walked into a store today and just because it was my birthday, they gave me 20% off my entire purchase. I also received other emails about other discounts. Likewise when you're dining out for said special occasion

7. The random happy birthdays

When I say this, I am referring to the multiple Facebook posts from some people you haven't (or have never) talked to in awhile. It's a really nice feeling knowing others are thinking about you and taking 2 minutes out of their day to wish you well.

8. You're a whole year older, wiser, and less likely to be carded.

Getting old sucks, but feeling like a mature (ish) young adult is great. It's almost like you're getting your shit together - at least for a little while.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.
