Birthdays, birthdays, birthdays!

August is a busy month for birthdays in my family. This year my younger daughter was three on the 17th; my mother was 70 on the 18th; my son was nine on the 22nd, and my brother-in-law had his birthday on the 28th. So we had lots of parties! My family loves to have parties. Recently in Britain, children’s birthday parties can be very large. The parents rent a venue like a cinema, or soft play area, or a restaurant. There will be an entertainer, cake, and party bags with presents for all the children who come. I’m so glad I live in Japan. In Japan, birthdays are just for the family.
