Ronne's first birthday
(Wow, there is a cake for me with a lit '1' candle)
My son Ronne was born on 5 March 2010 in the Gregorian calendar and therefore we should have celebrated his first birthday last weekend. However, we didn't, because we had had.
My mum argues (she ‘argues’) that we ought to abide by the lunar calendar when it comes to life-cycle celebrations or anniversaries, just like how we have Chinese New Year and other traditional festivals. As a result, instead, we held Ronne’s birthday celebration two weeks ago instead, on the 20th day of the first lunar month, which fell on 22 February this year.
Yes, Grannie. You're the Grannie and thus whatever you wish counts.
(Hey cakie cake, I'm coming!)
(I'm behaving. I'm just trying to count 'one' with my finger.)
