I am not a big fan of Birthday parties. I just don’t see the point of having a party every year and not really remembering it. Don’t get me wrong, I had birthday parties all the way from 1 to 16, but here is the thing–I don’t remember them. Well, maybe my 16th birthday party, because it was a simple homecooked lunch with my four best school friends. My 21st? well, anti-climactic, since I never got carded !! Anyway, while parties are overrated, there is one tradition that I try to uphold and that it the birthday cake. Everyone deserves a slice of cake and glass of champagne (if you are old enough to drink) on your birthday. So whether you celebrate your birthday for a week, or try to ignore it altogether, try to indulge in a slice of something sweet!
