Birthday is the name given to the day that some people in many cultures celebrate the anniversary of the day they were born. It is often marked by a birthday party and/or friends when gifts are given to the person celebrating the birthday. It is also customary to treat people extra special on their birthday, either generally acceding to their wishes, or subjecting them to a rite of transition; such as a birthday spanking.
The person celebrating their birthday is called birthday child (or birthday boy or birthday girl, as the case may be), even when they are adults. In most legal systems, one becomes a legal adult on a particular birthday (often 18th or 21st), and at different ages gains different rights and responsibilities.
