Every year I find myself wanting to do less and less for my birthday. Yesterday I went to work, and then to celebrate, I went to a pub with just a couple friends.
It was small, intimate, and perfect.
I do feel incredibly lucky, though, to work at a place where my employers show that they value their employees.
For each employee’s birthday they will buy them a bouquet of flowers.
For me they chose yellow, since I’m a summer baby, and red for my Chinese heritage. It was thoughtful, and generous, and such a nice touch.
I’m not sure why I did not feel the need for a great bit celebration – I certainly used to enjoy them. And I know I’m not the only one who now prefers smaller parties.
What about you? How do you enjoy celebrating your birthday? Have your celebrations changed over the years?
