The value of something is not based on how much it costs but is gauged according to the love of a person who made it possible. Birthdays are memorable events in life since it is a celebration of the precious gift that God has given us. We tend to celebrate it together with our loved ones. Food and drinks are usually shared on the table. Our hearts are filled with joy and excitement because of the presents that we receive during this day.
