My birthday falls on the 10th day of Aswin.

I'll be, fourteen on my next birthday. 

The day brings great joy to everyone in my family. 

My mother gives me new clothes to wear and makes me kneel before our gods. She prays for my long life and happiness. 

She makes many kinds of cakes and sweets. 

We invite our friends to a party at home. 

The whole house fills with cries of "Happy birthday." I receive a lot of lovely presents from friends and relatives and there is singing, dancing and merry-making. 

It is a great day for me.
