Funny Birthday Sayings

Aria Chen
During one of my whimsical travels, I found myself at a remote village where birthdays were celebrated with joyous banter rather than age-old traditions. The elders shared jokes about their age, making the entire community erupt in laughter. Inspired by their refreshing take on growing older, I penned down these playful sayings. Life, after all, should be about collecting giggles and not just counting years. Share these sayings with the birthday star, and you're sure to get a chuckle out of them!
