How I Celebrated My Birthday
Last Sunday was my birthday. Thought I usually burn the mid-night oil and wake late in the morning. But I got up very early last Sunday. I observe a special programme on my birthday every year. The day was full of engagements and merry-making.
I have a number of friends. I believe in the increase of the member of friends. I believe in the increase of the member of friends. Last Sunday it was my fourteenth birthday. So I invited only fourteen friends to my birthday celebrations. I resolved to bring a change for the better in the past years. I therefore, resolved to do my best this year to better myself.
With the new resolve I made a daily routine for myself. I decided to follow it throughout the year. I am glad to say that I have not missed a single item so far. I hope not to miss any item of the plan in this year.
Soon after I entered the drawing room. My friends were waiting for me. The room was full. There was noise everywhere. The scene was quite pleasant. It presented a festive look.
First to all I bowed before my parents. I touched their feet. They blessed me. Then I received the blessing of elderly people who were present on the occasion. After this all my friends congratulated me on my birthday. Their kind words gave me much pleasure. I thanked God, the maker of this world. Then I went to the temple in my sweet. I prayed to Shivji our family deity.
There was great pleasure, feasting and music all day long. Like a bee I moved from one little group of friends to another receiving gifts. At 2 p.m. the postman brought bundles of gift presents. He got his bakshis. My mother was all smiles. She opened the parcels my sister clapped out of joy.
Now it was evening. At the request of my friends, I went with them to the cinema hall. There we enjoyed the picture ‘Dhoom’. I was deeply moved by the pictured.
I returned home. I slept peacefully. I do not know who awakened me next morning. Thus I spent the last Sunday.

My Best Birthday
I believe that my birthday, is a special day. What is today ? I said to myself while looking at my phone. Its March 12th! Tomorrow is my birthday! I can’t believe that I forgot my own birthday! I think it’s because for the past three days I have been busy packing my stuff. I will be 11 years old tomorrow and I think this year is the last year that I will have my birthday party here in India. I always have a birthday party, but I think I’m not going to have one this year, it’s because my birthday is tomorrow that we don’t have time to get everything ready for the party. I went to the dining room to eat; when I got there everyone was eating like they didn’t know what tomorrow was! I got a little sad. I started to think to myself “do they remember my birthday?” I went outside to play with my friends still, no one said anything. I was going to tell my friends but we were playing and having too much fun. I got home and realized that I forgot to tell them, but today everyone was acting so weird to me. Today is March 13th, when I woke up I saw a very pretty dress, it was pink, and had a big bow on the back. The bow was white and the dress went down to my knees. I looked around and I saw a note on my table, it was from my mom. The note said to get the dress and after I got dress I had a very good feeling at that moment. After I opened the door, I saw all my friends and my family standing there with a cake, everyone said happy birthday to me it just made me so happy. I thought they had forgotten my birthday. But no they didn’t. They are the best family and friends I have ever had.

Birthdays come only once in a year and last year I celebrated my birthday the way I wanted to. My parents were gracious - enough to ask me for anything on that day and I asked them to arrange a grand party for my friends.
My mother is my best friend when it comes to inviting friends home. She helped me to make invitation cards and to fill them up with names. She made a list of all the friends I wanted to call and then made a card to send to each of my friends. The contents of each card were different so as to suit the taste of the particular friend to whom it was sent.
Thereafter she took me to the market and bought balloons and streamers, masks and caps, etc to decorate the house with. We ordered the cake and bought wrapping paper along with the return presents. As we reached home we sat down to work. We put up the streamers with tape and hung the balloons all over the walls and on the fans and doors and windows. We arranged the marks and caps in such a way that each friend of mine would pick one of his choices.
Mother was very busy. She spent the whole day in the kitchen cooking for all my friends. The cake arrived in the evening and soon my friends started pouring in. My father arranged some games for them and he became the referee for all our games. He arranged musical chairs, passing the parcel, follow the leader, dumb charades, etc. and all the children enjoyed themselves.
We had our tea after the cake was cut by me. The cake was in the shape of a beautiful house with colourful fencing and big chunks of chocolate. I was drowned in gifts once my friends left and I went to bed with the satisfaction of having enjoyed the best birthday party of my life.
