Birthday Celebrations Stop At 31?!?!

I know some people get really weird about their Birthday once they hit a certain age. For me, I celebrated my 29th Birthday for a good five or so years. But now I don't care. I'm 37. There's no shame in being in your late thirties, forties, or whatever. Age is just a number. But apparently for some they just can't get past 31!

According to a new study, the majority of people stop celebrating their Birthday at age 31. Why 31?

"Worries about getting 'too old' and simply 'not being bothered' after the 30th leave many only celebrating the milestone birthdays of 40, 50, and 60. Almost half admitted they had let a post 30 birthday pass them by completely because they barely acknowledged it, with one in five never having a birthday party again."

Here are 5 reasons someone doesn't celebrate their Birthday:

  1. It's become too much effort.
  2. My friends/family are too busy to celebrate with me.
  3. Birthday parties and celebrations are for children.
  4. I'm too old to celebrate.
  5. I don't want to be the center of attention.

I think out of all of those excuses I only really understand the last one about not wanting to be the center of attention. We've all been that person at the restaurant getting humiliated by the clapping and singing wait staff.

If you aren't some big party animal, there are so many other more low key ways to celebrate like having a nice dinner with friends and family. You don't have to have balloons, streamers, and copious amounts of booze to celebrate.
