Why does it have to be on your birthday? When of all days, this is the day you'd want to make everyone happy---your friends and family. You want them to feel happy too because it is your birthday, but how? You're broke, so what are you going to do? Should it be an unhappy birthday to you?
No way. With a little ingenuity and a few bucks, you could get yourself one ball of a time! How? Here are some ways in which you can celebrate your birthday with little or no money:
1. Plan a program. Set up a small stage from old tables and other scraps you have around, and invite your neighbors to come and participate in the show featuring everybody. In this program everybody is going to be a star. Encourage everyone to show off their talents in singing, dancing, acting, whatever. Serve sandwiches and juices while this is going on.
2. Karaoke singing. Sing your hearts out the whole night. You may invite your neighbors who are into singing too.
3. Camping. For a change because it is your birthday, have your dinner outside under the star-lit skies with the music of the crickets as background.
There are other countless ways you can have a grand time with your family when you don't have a penny on your birthday. Have fun!
