Growing up with a big extended family, birthdays in my household were basically celebrated all month long so everyone could get in on the celebrating — which meant multiple parties and multiple cakes. I have friends who aren't fans of celebrating birthdays as adults , which I totally get. Birthdays come with expectations, the stress of organizing it, that fear of getting older, plus no one ever wants to feel like they're forcing people to spend their day and money honoring their existence. But really, it's just one day or one week, two weeks, a month, whatever out of year that you get celebrate however you want to with whoever you want to, so why not make the most of it? Whether you love going all out for birthdays or prefer to keep them small and in your home, there are a ton of ways to make these celebrations more exciting, fun, and unique.
