Thank you, Gabriela from Poland!
I’ve kept a few birthday cards behind to celebrate my birthday in February.
“The hottest wishes, the best who in life beautiful, health, happy, and every success wishes”. These are the birthday wishes from Gabriela, 14 years old. She has sent me this cute card with flowers.
A birthday is a day when a person celebrates the anniversary of his or her birth. Birthdays are celebrated in numerous cultures, often with a gift, party, or rite of passage. The celebration of a birthday usually is thought to mark how old a person is, traditionally stopping when death occurs and only stating that if still alive, they would have been (number of years) old. Some contemporary writers ignore this aspect, however, and keep counting the years since the date of birth of famous people, such as, proclaiming that it is Shakespeare's "four hundredth birthday" (although he died at the age of fifty-two) instead of noting that it is the four hundredth anniversary of his birth.
