Let’s be honest. How many of you wouldn’t have loved to celebrate your birthdays as a child twice a year? Anybody? I’m not surprised. According to a recent article in iVillage, half-birthday parties are growing in popularity thanks to Pinterest and other sites such as HalfBirthday.com. Although I think we can all agree that throwing one birthday party is enough, writer Lela Davidson does offer a few instances when it may be appropriate to celebrate a half-birthday.
The Make-Up Party – Perhaps your child’s outdoor birthday party was rained out or their indoor celebration fell short of expectations. Whatever the reason the party was a dud, many moms agree that half-birthday can be celebrated as replacements for the real day.
Summer Baby Problems – If your child is a summer baby, Davidson writes that it’s OK to send cupcakes to school with your child to celebrate his/her half-birthday. Why should babies born in any other season have all the fun?
You’re a Cheese Head – Apparently, half-birthdays a big deal in Wisconsin. Rather than being stuck inside with a room full of children during the winter months, parents in Wisconsin are celebrating their child’s half-birthday by taking the party outdoors.
New Mom Alert – Excited about the birth of your first child? Davidson gives a pass to first-time moms celebrating a one-time half-birthday.
Christmas Claus – Davidson found that most parents encourage the half-birthday celebration if a child’s birthday falls “dangerously close to Christmas”. I guess these parents aren’t familiar with the phrase “kill two birds with one stone”.
