The common birthday tradition is blowing candles on a cake and getting gifts from friends and family. But the day someone was born isn’t celebrated in the same way around the world.
In Latin countries for example, parties wouldn’t be complete without the piñata. These colorful containers are usually made of papier-mâché, pottery, or cloth, and then decorated to resemble cartoons, donkeys, or even politicians. In Canada, celebrants are ‘ambushed’ by loved ones to smear butter on their noses for luck.
Meanwhile, Chinese birthdays aren’t the same without birthday noodles, or chang shou mian. These are left uncut to symbolize long life. In Germany, you get chores if you’re still single on your 30th birthday. Men need to sweep the stairs of town hall (or any public place), and women need to wipe doorknobs. To be saved from this task, you need a kiss from the opposite sex.
Regardless of culture or age, there are people who don’t make a big deal out of their special day. Some folks simply go home, eat dinner, and maybe enjoy a quiet evening alone. Some just want to treat their friends to a nice meal.
Not celebrating anything in particular? Don’t worry, these sweet birthday fonts can dress up any project for any occasion, big or small.
