Are you tired of the same old birthday celebrations? Are you ready for something new and exciting to celebrate the day you came into being? If so, it's time to ditch the birthday party and start celebrating beingday!
What is beingday, you ask? It's the day you came into being – your conception day! That's right, forget about the day you were born; your beingday is the real celebration of your life.
But why celebrate beingday instead of your birthday? For starters, birthdays aren't even close to a person's true age. Your beingday is the official day you came into being, and that's when your actual age begins. Birthdays are just milestones of you coming into being. Plus, recognizing beingday shifts the mindset from when life begins to accepting when life begins and just celebrating.
So, how do you celebrate beingday? It's simple – figure out your beingday (plus or minus a few days) and celebrate that joyous day. You can use a reverse birth calculator to help you determine your beingday, or you can just choose a day close enough and document and celebrate it. The day doesn't have to be perfect – the sentiment is what counts.
There are so many fun ways to celebrate beingday. Here are just a few ideas to get you started:
- Hold a beingday ceremony. Invite your family and friends to witness the joyous event. You can present the "one candle per life" – a single long-lasting candle that is lit every year of your beingday during the beingday song and blown out at the end of the song.
Alternatively, you can acquire a single candle each year and burn it for the entire celebration day.
- Have a token exchange. Everyone brings a token gift to exchange, and the host provides a token gift for the beingday person. Everyone draws a number; the beingday person is always last and unwraps the last unwrapped gift and has the option to exchange.
Each person can choose to pick a token from the pile of presents or take one from the already chosen gifts. The person whose gift was taken must choose a wrapped gift and open it before the next person takes their turn.
- Create new traditions and customs. Beingday is a new celebration, so don't be afraid to get creative and come up with new traditions and customs that make it personal for you. Invite your family and friends to your beingday party and have a blast celebrating the joyous day you came into being.
Of course, beingday isn't just about celebrating – it's also about raising awareness and understanding about reproductive health and the importance of life's beginnings. That's why it's so important to officially recognize beingdays at the international, federal, state, and local levels.
