This coming Wednesday the 22nd, I turn 22. That makes it my golden birthday.
Wikipedia says: Ones golden birthday, also called a champagne birthday, is the day when the age one turns and the date of birth coincide (e.g. someone turning 20 on September 20th celebrates his golden birthday). Hallmark even offers special golden birthday cards which celebrate the once-in-a-lifetime birthday when the age and the birth date are the same.
I tried to find a history of the term golden birthday but it was fruitless. Someone suggested that a silver birthday should be when your age and the year you were born match. Thats nice, but what if you were born in 1999 or 2000?
