The Birthday Book: Celebrations for Everyone

Birthdays are milestones on our journey through life. The authors say, “We wrote this book for the many people who wish to find ways of bringing beauty, meaning, and a touch of magic into the celebration of birthdays.”

Packed with recipes, stories, songs and games, and ideas for cards, decorations, and presents, The Birthday Book is spiced with quotations from famous birthday celebrants and amusing historical anecdotes.

  • How to organize a party—invitations, games, prizes and food.
  • Party suggestions for teenagers, 18 to 21 year-olds, twins, and small children.
  • Unique celebrations for those on holiday, ill, Christmas birthdays, and rainy days.
  • Birthday traditions from around the world—Chinese, Muslim, Hindu, and many more.
