New Age - New Birthday Wishes!

The birthday of someone close to our hearts is an opportunity to focus on them, think about the person they are and our connection with them, and to tell them how dear they are to us and how much we good we wish for them. A simple, “Hey, happy birthday,” doesn’t do our sentiments justice, and seems to go in one ear and out the other without being truly felt. Even writing tired and generic expressions found via google or with AI assistance, such as, “Age is only a number,” or, “You’re not 70; you’re 18 with 52 years’ experience!”- doesn’t feel a whole lot better. It’s still not a personal birthday greeting.

Love is found in the little details, which change all the time and can be very, very specific. The birthday card addressing someone turning 50 should be distinct from one for age 70, but also distinct even from age 51…

It also makes a huge difference for whom we are writing the birthday wishes. The greeting composed for my little sister won’t sound much like the one for my father, and neither of those will be appropriate for the birthday card for my best friend from college.

Yet somehow, despite the magnitude of our love, when sitting down to pen a birthday greeting, our brains can shut down and the perfect words evade us. In the end we find ourselves returning to the same overused texts, hoping they will suffice. Of course, our loved ones will instantly forgive the less-than-optimal birthday wishes. But we’ve missed a special opportunity…

A greeting for a 50th birthday… how to write one unlike any other?

A 50th birthday is undoubtedly the most important birthday in a person’s life- or so it seems, given the number of searches for the subject on google.

"For my 70th birthday I got a card unlike any I'd gotten in my entire life."

70-year-olds have already seen pretty much everything. And when it comes to birthdays and the greetings that come with them, they’ve really seen everything.

Are there any birthday cards out there just for age 43?

There’s no charitable way to put this- 43 is an entirely unremarkable age. Boring. It’s not half a century, a quarter century, not even a nice round number. So what do you say to honor someone’s 43rd birthday? This question is apt for most ages, when it comes down to it. Are we supposed to just repurpose the same birthday wishes from the previous year?

1-year birthday cards - are they for the child or the parents?

When a child reaches age one, they obviously don’t really understand the birthday greetings they get. But the parents do!
