Birthdays are SPECIAL...especially for kids who wait all year for their big day! Teenagers might not be as excited about their birthday as they were when they were younger. They might no longer want a big traditional birthday party with boring cakes, games, and goodie bags. They might expect something a little more "cool" and "exciting."
