They're generally low-key but must-celebrated. My dad had placed a helium balloon in the foyer of the house as his surprise to my brother when he comes home from work on his birthday. Yes, my 28-years-old brother. Now that... is typical of our family celebrations. Never anything overdone and glamorous, but little surprises hidden for you to seek. We appreciate it all. Even a colourful helium balloon at the age of 28. What is it really? Thought. That's all.
(Sorry about the distortion in the photo. My brother doesn't really have miniature legs and an elongated torso, but that's what you get for taking a photo on the stairway looking down).
And of course, there is always the birthday song and a big slice of cake.
Happy Birthday, Brother!
