Celebrating Birthdays without Food

When most people think of birthdays they think of cake. And who doesn’t love cake? When the cake becomes a problem celebrating doesn’t have to end  These are a few of my favorite ways to celebrate without food.

* Center the celebration around an activity rather than food.  Swimming, skating or a craft party for children, a play or concert for aduls.

* Make a donation to a cause to benefit children in the amount of your age.

* Organize a card shower for the birthday girl/boy instead of a party. Who doesn’t love cards?

* If you are planning a party be sure the celebration is meaningful and fun for the person with the birthday.

* If you find yourself alone on your birthday celebrate anyway.  Invite a friend co-worker or neighbor to join you.

* Do something nice for your mother or in her memory if she has passed. After all you wouldn’t be here without her.
