Birthday Traditions

It's my birthday today! In that vein, I'm looking for birthday traditions people celebrate. For example, my dad, for decades, always gave me flowers on my birthday. Another example, family friends whose tradition was for the birthday person to cut the first piece of cake for him or herself from whatever part of the cake and in whatever shape he or she wanted.

So what are the birthday traditions in your family? Or how about one you've heard about that you'd like to try yourself?

Hope you had a Happy Birthday! Mine was over the weekend.

I guess the one tradition I always looked forward to was my Grandmother baking us birthday cakes. No matter what kind we wanted, she would always make it. For years, I would get a Strawberry Shortcake. Later on, it changed to German Chocolate. She was an awesome lady. :)
