People celebrating birthdays
Have you noticed that people are now throwing parties increasingly to celebrate birthdays which they normally wouldn't have? For example, I can understand someone having a bash to celebrate their 21st or 30th or 40th or 50th or 60th or 70th or 80th or 90th or 100th if they live that long, because they are big milestones. However, people have big parties and bashes now to celebrate their 25th birthday or 35th birthday or notably, their 65th and 75th. I suppose some people have a party if a letter is being opened. I wouldn't be surprised if eventually, people start throwing them, for example, to celebrate their 39th birthday to mark the fact that they are one year away from 40 and approaching their 40th birthday, and their 41st, because it is the anniversary of their 40th birthday party.. and so on..
