"And in the end,
it's not the years in your life that count.
It's the life in your years."
- Abraham Lincoln
Birthdays are celebrated in a variety of ways. There are some who would like to have it simply by being with the immediate family and eat at a restaurant or at home. There are some who would like to celebrate it extravagantly by throwing out a party at a bar, a restaurant or a large venue to accommodate a number of guests.
