Too bad is not a weekend. 

How do you celebrate in your country?

In the USA, most people celebrate by inviting friends and family to dinner at a restaurant or to their house. There's always cake, usually topped with however many candles the person is turning. So if I'm turning 16 years old, there would be 16 candles on my birthday cake. Some people bring balloons or other decorations. At night, if the person is older than 21, they celebrate with drinks at bars or clubs. For children, kids often play pin the tail on the donkey or hit a piñata. 

What I do on my birthday is go to all the places that give you free stuff on your birthday. Many food places give away free food if it's your birthday or discounts.

It doesn't really matter how you celebrate it as long as you have no recollection of it the following day.

Thank you Paige for the corrections.

Of course I understood Soňa.

Thank you all for your comments.

I think the most important thing is to be with your friends and family. Right?


Cheers
