Why should your birthday be a diferent day than all the other days that pass? Well of course there is your family and considerate friends that would take advantage of the timing and show you their love. That's not what i mean.
I guess, i can rephrase my question that why would you feel you're getting "old" in your birthday anniversary. Isn't it that each day that comes to an end, is making you "old"er. Perhaps we just accumulate these small repeated feeling olds and just set them free in our birthdy night.
When i was a kid, at the night before my birthdays, i would go to the balcony, look at the stars and say farewell to my past year 'figure' of age. When your a kid, youre enthusiastic about diing one to your digit. Why is it changed when you grow up?
