Birthdays. They’re a celebration of us coming into this strange yet beautiful world and inhabiting it for as long as we can. From having themed parties as children to living long enough to be 100 and cut a step to Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic,” the way we celebrate our birthdays vary, but they all speak to the joy of having a special day with people you care about. So blow out the candles and make a wish with these birthday memes.
