Do you know what a "golden birthday" is, have you ever celebrated it and if so, what did you do?

But I'm not 50.

Wait. Does this have to do with pee?

isnt it when you turn the year that your birthdate is. Like my birthday is October 7th so my golden birthday was when i was 7? Clearly im not even positive what it is so... no.

OMG I am the queen of golden birthdays. I was totally obsessed with mine when I was turning 6 (on Aug 6), so my great aunt baked me a 6 layer cake. Woohoo!

I promised my sister a 17 layer cake on her golden birthday. I bought her a baklava. Totally not the same.

there seem to be two schools of thought. some say it's the 50th and some say it's what hailey said. mine was 2 years ago and it just made me feel old because when i was 6 my best friend had a birth on the 6th and i was so jealous and it seemed like it would be FOREVER until i had my golden birthday. i celebrated by drinking, which doesn't really distinguish from any saturday night.

We celebrated golden birthday when you turn the age of your birthday. So, I had mine when I was 14. I got a lot of gold-colored things.

I had always assumed this was a universal phenomenon, but then I moved to DC and a bunch of people had never heard of this.

I figured this had something to do with Golden Girls or peeing on someone's cake, but am happy to find out that it's not.

I turned 29 this year on March 29th, and while I didn't know it was a golden birthday, it was still pretty awesome.

Not Pee?? Booooorrrrrriiiinnnng.

Statistic bomb: Odds of two people having the same birthday in a random group? "99% probability is reached with a mere 57 people, and 50% probability with 23 people."(w)

uh-huh.

Haha, I love that half of you went straight to "Golden Shower". Mine was when I was 8. I remember thinking it was awesome but not that it was a golden birthday. But I think all of my birthdays are awesome.

i know what a golden birthday is - y'all are gross. mine was on the 22nd/when i turned 22. i don't remember acknowledging it was a golden birthday and might not have known what it was at the time. and i don't really remember what i did. i turned 23 in nice, france and that was awesome.
