This is based on all live births registered in New Zealand between 19.
The last stanza of Patty Hill's and Mildred Hill's famous song, "Good Morning to You" (unofficially titled "Happy Birthday to You") is typically sung by the guests at some point in the proceedings.
In some countries a piñata takes the place of a cake.
In common years they usually celebrate their birthdays on February 28.
In some situations, March 1 is used as the birthday in a non-leap year since it is the day following February 28.
Technically, a leapling will have fewer birthday anniversaries than their age in years.
This phenomenon is exploited when a person claims to be only a quarter of their actual age, by counting their leap-year birthday anniversaries only.Many religions celebrate the birth of their founders or religious figures with special holidays (e.g.Christmas, Mawlid, Buddha's Birthday, and Krishna Janmashtami).There is a distinction between birthday and birthdate: The former, other than February 29, occurs each year (e.g.January 15), while the latter is the exact date a person was born (e.g., January 15, 2001).The age of majority is the age when minors cease to legally be considered children and assume control over their persons, actions, and decisions, thereby terminating the legal control and legal responsibilities of their parents or guardians over and for them.Most countries set the age of majority at 18, though it varies by jurisdiction.In many cultures, the wish must be kept secret or it won't "come true".Presents are bestowed on the individual by the guests appropriate to her/his age.In most legal systems, one becomes designated as an adult on a particular birthday (usually between 12 and 21), and reaching age-specific milestones confers particular rights and responsibilities.At certain ages, one may become eligible to leave full-time education, become subject to military conscription or to enlist in the military, to consent to sexual intercourse, to marry, to marry without parental consent, to vote, to run for elected office, to legally purchase (or consume) alcohol and tobacco products, to purchase lottery tickets, or to obtain a driver's licence.
