In the middle ages did they celebrate birthdays?
Most of the medieval people did not have any idea what their birthdays were. The data we have about the births of members of the nobility often say such things as that they were born "in the end of May or the beginning of June." For many people, even important people, we have no record of the years in which they were born. The earliest person crowned king of England whose birthday is known was Henry II. Before him, we do not know even the years for the births of most kings. Information about a person's birthday was crucial to casting that person's horoscope, so the information was kept about princes and other important people. But high born people, such as kings and emperors, who might have been exposed to the rumors that astrologers might spread about their futures would not want that information to leak out. In the later Middle Ages in England, church registers have information about the births or baptisms of everyone in the parish. But even after them Middle Ages, the baptism was often considered more important than the birth. We know when Shakespeare was baptized, but have no record of his birthday. There were doubtless people who did celebrate birthdays nevertheless. The Middle Ages covered a continent for a thousand years, and there was a lot of variation in custom. Also, birthdays were celebrated in some ancient cultures, so the celebrations are not purely recent. There are a couple links below.

Is the "Happy Birthday" song still copyrighted?
Gone are the days of TV families having to resort to “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow” around the birthday cake. “Happy Birthday to You” officially became part of the public domain in 2016 after a judge ruled in a lawsuit that music publisher Warner/Chappell didn’t actually own the copyright to the song. The ruling also mandated that Warner/Chappell return $14 million to people who had paid to use the song (a nice birthday present, if a little late). It’s still not completely clear where the song originated or if Warner/Chappell ever actually held the copyright at all, but the prevailing theory is that it was written in 1893 by Patty and Mildred Hill.

Asked in Birthdays
What do you buy for a little girls first birthday?
Girls who are turning one probably won't be able to tell you what they want for their birthday, and they won't be able to recognize who gave it, either. Shopping for birthday party presents for little kids is probably the easiest-I would recommend clothes. Clothing is very useful, helps out the parents, and is a simple yet perfect present. Another good gift would be shoes, which can also be used everyday. Another great gift is a gift card to Toys R Us or any other toy store. Basically, anything useful for the family would be an excellent present.

All the girl were dressed up as there favorite stars, and we Had different categories like best dressed for a birthday girl and etc. And awards like toys. Then we had a make up station and hair stylist and a nail person. Then there was a massage area and then there was the relaxing station for before and after the awards. Then there was the kitchen with all the food. the the living room was the awards room. The actual awards started at 6:30 pm and they had to be there an hour before. So then after that we had a sleepover and midnight food and movies .

How do you convince parents to give you your hidden birthday present early?
well, first of all make a conversation with your parents then bring the present thing up if that doesn't work well, then try to look for it unless they still haven't bought well then your looking and wasting your time. Finally if the two suggestion don't work well, then you should wait and let it be a surprise you now its not bad waiting and letting it be a surprise. :) HOPE THAT HELPS.
