You’re Never Too Old to Celebrate Half Birthdays!
But let’s be real, to some, celebrating half birthdays may seem like a childish thing to do and a “holiday” that only five-year-olds feel the need to celebrate, but it’s a wonderful and unexpected way to show someone you’re thinking about them. In fact, why wait until someone’s actual birthday to celebrate their lives? Half birthdays are the perfect way to give some love in a way that’s sure to surprise and delight the people you love.
On March 9, (AKA the most common half birthday of the year) take some time to show these people that you’re thinking about them, and are happy they’re in your life. If you’re unsure how there’s no better way than to send a small gift such as a beautifully designed and unique card.
Greeting cards can serve as the perfect gift to show you care and are a great way to make the receiver smile with joy. In fact, statistics from Lovepop show that 87% of people prefer to receive physical birthday cards in the mail, compared to only 9% who said an e-card or a 4%
