A golden birthday is a special occasion that only happens once in a lifetime but not many people know about it. It is said to be a lucky day, when your age matches the day of the month on which you were born. For example, if you turn 25 years old on the 25th, that would be a golden birthday!
Celebrate by having a party with friends and family and playing some fun games to make it an extra special day!
What is a Golden Birthday and What to do if you Missed it
Many people want to know the meaning of a golden birthday and how to celebrate it. A Golden Birthday is a special day: it is when someone's age and the date of their birthday form a perfect match. For example, if you were born on the 16th of the month, your Golden Birthday would be when you turn 16.
It marks an important milestone, so when this special day comes around it should definitely be celebrated! But if you happen to miss it or are unable to find time to celebrate, all hope isn't lost yet! You can still mark your Golden Birthday with a Double or Triple Golden Birthday.
This is when your age is double or triple the day you were born. For example, if you were born on the 10th of November, then your Golden Birthday would be when you are 10, your Double Golden Birthday would be when you are 20 and your Triple Golden Birthday would be when you are 30. So a missed Golden Birthday doesn't have to mean missing out on the extra-special feeling that comes with celebrating this milestone.
