Right, i turn 18 this november coming and in England your 18th birthday is a pretty special one as you're finally able to do all manner of things like buy alcohol, donate blood and organs etc etc.

Now i know it's almost nine months away yet, but my mum is going into overdrive wanting to start saving money and making some preliminary plans now. We think we have a hotel in mind but if i want much say in this whole thing i should probably start coming up with some themes or something like that. We think we're having a big family only weekend.

So do any of you have any ideas? what did you do for your sweet sixteens or your 18th or 21st? did you have special colours, dress code, food? any suggestions at all are welcome!

well, giving a pint of blood is always a nice idea. but hey, you can always celebrate by donating that spare kidney.


i am being facetious. anyway, I didn't do much with my 18th birthday. my roommate brought me a wine cooler, but i didn't drink it. my other roommate flirted with the boy at the bakery and brought us a chocolate cake. i did eat that.

21 is the big drinking holiday here in the states, and that was just a bonzer gathering of my friends that lasted till 3am. no theme, just havoc.

I'm not into the whole idea of debuts of Sweet 16s, but if you really wanna go that route, then I think you oughtta throw yourself something similar to a quincenera Although i suppose at 18, it'd be called a dieciochonera. anyway, look up "quincenera" and check out that customs involved.
