Birthday is the name given to the date of the anniversary of the day of a person's birth. People in many cultures celebrate this anniversary. In some languages, the word for birthday literally translates as "anniversary". Birthdays are traditionally marked by celebrations including a birthday party or, in some particular cases, a rite of transition.

Origin of Birthday
It is thought the large-scale celebration of birthdays in Europe began with the non-Christian cult of Mithras, which originated in Persia, and was spread by soldiers throughout the Roman Empire. Such celebrations were uncommon previously so practices from other contexts such as the Saturnalia were adapted for birthdays. Because many Roman soldiers took to Mithraism, it was distributed widely and its influence was spread throughout the empire until it was supplanted by Christianity.

18th Birthday
18th birthday marks the end of teenage and the beginning of adulthood. It is a very special day in every one's life because on this a person cherishes the old moments filled with love, care and shelter but now the person is moving towards adulthood where he or she will be loaded with responsibilities and independence of thought and expression.

21st Birthday
21st birthday is another milestone in a person's life. It brings along a long way of anticipation and dreams along with motivation and inspiration to reach out for the stars. This is an age when you become more responsible with your personal and professional life. This age pushes you in a well filled with half water so that you can decide your own perceptions in life.
Having a birthday is considered a special occasion in many different countries, but the 21st birthday is special in many ways. For one reason or another, turning 21 has always been a rite of passage and a great cause of celebration world wide. Of course, in the United States, the 21st birthday marks the final milestone to completing the process of becoming an adult as the doors to taverns, pubs, nightclubs, and bars become open and waiting. Suddenly, that which was secretive and unknown, becomes ordinary and, well, to be honest, underwhelming.

30th Birthday
The big 30th birthday is a very special occasion for many. It can be a huge milestone signifying true adulthood, although many view turning 30 as a deadline. By the time you hit thirty you're supposed to have a good job, house, mate and so on and this artificial deadline can cause some people to be sad on their thirtieth. There is no need for this. The big Three¨CO or 30th birthday celebration should be a time of happiness and a chance to reflect on how much has been accomplished in your life and on your own schedule.

40th Birthday
Your 40th birthday welcomes you into the beautiful "middle age". This age does not have the casual immaturity of the youth, nor does it have the constant dependency of old age. You can enjoy your 40th birthday in quiet reflection on the four decades of a beautiful life. It is the time for you to enjoy the little moments rather than focus on bigger events.

50th Birthday
50th birthday is a very special day for a person, as this age is considered to be full of sweet and sour experiences. 50th birthday is considered as a milestone, as it indicates the completion of half the century of the life's journey.
