Coming of Age Birthdays

Michelle Eckles - Monday, August 09, 2010
Many cultures have one or more coming of age birthdays:

  •  Jewish boys become bar mitzvah on their 13th birthday.
  • Jewish girls become bat mitzvah on their 12th birthday, or sometimes on their 13th birthday in Reform and Conservative Judaism.
  •  In Hispanic-American countries the quinceañera celebration traditionally marks a girl's 15th birthday.
  • In India, the 12th or 13th birthday is replaced with a grand "thread ceremony." The child takes a blessed thread and wears it, symbolizing his coming of age. This ceremony is more common amongst boys in the Hindu Brahmin culture.
  • In the Philippines, girls on their 18th birthday or boys on their 21st birthday celebrate a debut.
  • A person's Golden or Grand Birthday, also referred to as their "Lucky Birthday", "Champagne Birthday" or "Star Birthday", occurs when they turn the age of their birth day (e.g., when someone born on the 25th of the month turns 25).
