How Kid’s Birthday Parties are Celebrated Worldwide (part 1 of 2)

We celebrate kid’s birthday parties with fun, but have you ever known how kid’s birthday parties are celebrated worldwide?

We can take a quick trip around the world to find out how people from major parts of the world celebrate birthdays and how they practice it in general. In the United States and many other parts of the world, we commonly celebrate kid’s birthday parties with themes of choice by the one celebrating his or her birthday.

It is a common practice to have the party at home, with decorations set up in place and common party fare includes cakes, candies, soda, hotdogs, marshmallows and other treats children enjoy. Games are played during the course of the party where guests participate and win prizes at the same time.

This is also a similar practice throughout the Western world and is one of the most awaited party activity for kids all over. In Africa, there is a tribe in Ghana that celebrate the birth of their children on the day of the week they were born.

They call it Krada which means ‘soul day’ as their way of giving tribute to the creator for giving them the gift of a child – another soul added to their family. Most tribes or communities do not celebrate the birth of their children and common celebrations only involve tribes -people celebrating the manhood of children, as they are ushered in to adulthood through certain rituals and traditional practices.

In the Middle East, specifically in Egypt, children’s birthdays are commonly celebrated with singing and dancing with the party venue decorated with fruits and flowers, which symbolizes life and growth as the years go on for those celebrating their birthdays.
