Birthday Traditions Around the World

When I was little my uncle would always joke on my birthday about what order I wanted things done in. "Games, cake, presents? Presents, games, cake?" To this day whenever he calls to wish me "happy birthday" he still asks how I plan on organizing our family's birthday traditions. Every family has their own unique way to celebrate someone's birthday, but countries/cultures at large have some pretty interesting traditions!
