Because I survived another year of life, we each have our own day to be a 'King' And the rest we are servants. One day is not that much to ask.
Time...line? Time isn't made out of lines. It is made out of circles. That is why clocks are round. ~ Caboose
Gifts, celebration, joy, and cake. Don't forget the cake. Of course this doesn't mean much the older you get, it starts becoming a ritual of sorts instead of a celebration. I still like my birthday, it just means I'm a year older now. With cake.
...Seriously can't be the only one who enjoys birthdays mainly because of the cake.
so hey another year of my life gone!!! instead of making the most of my life and enjoy it as much as possible Im gonna sit here and cry because Im gonna die eventually.... logic?
Sorry, just couldn't help myself.

Hell, people even use moving to another place as an excuse, I find it ridiculous frankly...
As for birthdays, I've stopped caring about them altogether, as with most traditions. I see little to no point in them.
You need to cheer up. Here, have a birthday cake:
Jesus man, just take the time to celebrate and have fun and don't worry so much about D-Day.
Besides, in a few years, scientists will figure out how to neutralize those telemeres and aging will be a thing of the past anyways.
It's the celebration of birth, plus at certain ages there are perks like the right to drive a motorized vehicle, smoke, vote, drink, etc...
My 18th Birthday is 237 days away. Biggest milestone in ones life. I can't wait to celebrate. I don't understand why you wouldn't want to be happy? Let alone on your birthday.
Because you see the half that's empty, you see the years left until you're dead while the most of us see the full part of the glass, we celebrate being another year alive!
I celebrate it and spend time with everyone I care about.
Because it's a wonderful tradition to feel spoilt by everyone all at once on 1 day.
As I've got older my birthday has been more about a lie in and day off work
Now I enjoy my kids birthdays much more.
