Birthdays are fun, why not celebrate the half!? These Half Birthday Party Ideas are perfect for the young and hold – ages 6 months to 100 years plus!
Half Birthday Party Ideas
It seems like adding a celebration for every day of the year is becoming a think. We have son’s day, cat day, national love a tree day. I might be making some of these up, but official holidays are picking up and a half birthday celebration is too.
When is my half birthday?
You might be asking what’s a half birthday? Basically a half birthday is a unique and special date to everyone. It can be found by adding six months to your birthday and celebrating the halfway milestone. Need help finding your half birthday mark? You can use a handy half birthday calculator to help you find your special date. Often this themed party is recognized for young babies when they turn six months, but they are becoming more and more of a thing for young kids and adults too, especially for a summer baby or winter birthday when friends might be traveling and parties can be a challenge.
My youngest kids (the twins) birthday is a few days away from Christmas. This is always a rough time to celebrate. People who have birthdays close to major holidays often speak of feeling a little “cheated” out of gifts. Having a small June celebration, even if only a small gift, special dinner, and a half birthday cake, would be a fun way to celebrate them when the busy season doesn’t over shadow their birthday. Contrary, if your child has a summer birthday, a half birthday is a way to recognize it when friends are not traveling or perhaps in the classroom.

What’s My Half Birthday?
It’s very easy to calculate your half birthday. First, identify your birth date. Take your birthday month and count six months later. Keeping the same numeric date, that is your half birthday. You have only switched the month.
For example, my birthday July 15th. I calculate six months from July. It’s January. So my half birthday is January 15th.
Enjoy and half fun looking for something to celebrate YOU and your family and friends more than once a year!
