My birthday was yesterday. Salvadorans usually go to a restaurant or cook a special dish that we don’t eat frequently (or a dish that you like most) and eat cake with our family and friends. Today, when I was eating a piece of cake I wondered, what do people eat in other countries? If you also have like a specific tradition, I would like to know.
First of all belated Happy Birthday:)May God fulfill all your wishes:)
Generally,here people after celebrating their birthday,go to some restaurant or some nice places with their friends to eat some special.
But I usually prefer to eat some sweet dishes as I love it and yes there is a saying in my country that--Before doing something very important or if you are feeling special,then you should go for a bit of sweet as it will make your day sweeter:)
And yes,one more thing to share,when I was little then my grandparents used to arrange a small party in my village by offering a prayer to God for my well-being.But now I'm missing those days but still, those are some great days in my life:)
I EAT WHAT I WANT TO HAVE.
LIKE HOT POT,CURRY(JAPANESE),AND SO ON......
WELL MY BIRTHDAY WILL BE THE NEXT YEAR, THE END OF THE APRIL,27TH DAY.
I've only celebrated my birthday in America, but we always have cake with candles, and friends and family always sing the "Happy Birthday" song. As children this is exciting, but after puberty it becomes quite awkward and can put on a lot of pressure with the amount of attention directed towards the "birthday boy/girl," however it happens every year!
I request my favorite food and time with my favorite people on my birthday. I usually choose Mexican food or BBQ.
I have a friend from Mexico who told me that it would be rude for me not to kiss and hug every guest at my party, thanking them for coming to my party! I always acknowledge everyone but a kiss and hug are quite intimate gestures for Americans, however I think it is a lovely thing to do and I wish to start--starting next year!
