Birthdays are milestones on our journey through life. Here is a complete resource for creating your own birthday rituals to show the special people in your life how much you love them.
The Birthday Book is packed with recipes, stories, songs, games, and ideas for cards, decorations and presents. There are suggestions for 'oldies', for teenagers, 18th and 21st parties as well as children's parties. You will also find unusual celebrations for those celebrating birthdays on holiday, ill in bed, at Christmas or for rainy days.
