A Very Merry Unbirthday to You!! Not heard of an unbirthday? It’s from Alice in Wonderland. Honestly I’m not sure if it is a Lewis Carroll creation or a Disney addition but it’s is a great excuse for a party either way. After all there are more unbirthdays than birthdays every day! Think about it, you get 364 every year. Teehee.
I’ve been thinking about celebrations and how sometimes the expectations are so high for milestone in our lives: significant birthdays, graduations, new houses, new babies, new jobs. There are all kinds of reasons to celebrate. And there should be, don’t get me wrong. But sometimes the pressure to have a really good time or a fantastic celebration is hard to pull off.
So I was thinking why not throw a shindig for no apparent reason what so ever, just like the gang in Wonderland. It’s probably everyone’s unbirthday at your house this week. What if you were to surprise someone with a celebration just because it’s Wednesday? Why not? Summer is a great time to add a little silliness to your life. Try it out. Ice cream for dinner. Cards taped to the bathroom mirror. Balloons in the living room. Squirt guns in the backyard. There are all kinds of ways to put a smile on a family member’s face today. And not just the kids, hard working parents could use a break too. I challenge you to celebrate an unbirthday today.
