I climbed about 25 feet up the rock wall on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Freedom of the Seas on my 60th birthday Dec 6th! I am not all athletic so this was quite a feat for me to even attempt.

One Charming Party

Im talking about birthday traditions this week. The first one wasbirthday breakfasts. Id love to hear your birthday traditions, either growing up or new ones, in the comments.

I never need an excuse to throw a party and I love it when theres an even bigger reason to celebrate. I was at a friends house the other day and she was showing me pictures of her sons adorable birthday party. She explained that it was his golden birthday, also called a grand birthday, lucky birthday, or star birthday. Her son was turning the same age as the date of his birthdayhe turned one and was born on the 1st. Its a long tradition in her family and she always buys the same amount of gold balloons as the age they are turning, in this case one gold balloon. Oh, and of course she has a big party for them as well.

This tradition sounded vaguely familiar, but it wasnt a big deal in my family growing up. However, I think that its an awesome idea and although both my husbands and my golden birthdays passed when we were both young, none of my kids have had their golden birthdays yet. These are the birthdays that I have to look forward to: 10, 12, 19, 23. Not exactly super important birthdays, but I cant wait to make those years extra special and hopefully pass on a new tradition to my kids.

Anyone else celebrate golden birthdays? Any tips?

My golden birthday was when I turned 22 on 2/22 (2007). I got my first pair of diamond earrings from my dad for this special birthday and I will never ever forget that!

we love that tradition!!heres my sisters 21st/golden b-day!

LibbyThats so sweet that your dad gave you diamond earrings! What a cool gift for your golden birthday.

ColleenAll of your parties are darling! Love them. Thanks for sharing.

I know you dont like piñatas, but Im latin so a party isnt a party without one!

We do golden birthdays in our family too my bonus mom told me about it. I laugh at my husband because he was born on the 2nd, so he already had his. Not sure what Im doing for mine since its going to be in the same year as my daughters massive first birthday party something just for me I think.

my golden birthday will happen on the 28th i will be turning 28. I dont know what i should do that day?

Delighted to be planning my Golden Birthday Bash. Heres my inspiration board so far

This is such a sweet tradition to pass on. My Golden Birthday is this weekend, 23 on October 23rd. Though I dont have any really big plans, Ill be spending time with some amazing friends, and I couldnt ask for more than that. I know that either way, it will be a birthday I will definitely remember, and that is truly all I could ask for such an important day. =]

my golden birthday is this year my golden sweet sixteen. my mom and i have been talking about it and trying to figure out what to do, and i really want this one to be special. ive only had a birthday party when i was 10 and 13, so my 16th doesnt have much to beat. i already bought my car, and i will be getting my license about a week later im hoping to have about 6 friends + me, any ideas??

My son will be 11 on 11/11/11I am trying to find some awesome ideas for him. Thats more then a golden birthday. I may do the gold theme. Everything gold.

My daughter will also turn 11 on 11-11-11. Would love a cool idea that is not real expensive.

My son will also be 11 on 11/11/11 this year!!! Id love to get some ideas from the two ladies above who also share the same day. We are having a surprise party, but thats about all I know. Is there a way to contact Angie, and or Betsy to get some ideas on what they are doing?

My birthday is also October 23rd, and I will be turning 23 next year and I wanted to start planning early, any ideas?
