Today I will be attending my friend’s daughter’s 6th birthday party. Lots of excited kids, games, food and cake are to be expected (yes, cake is food but merits its own category in my books). I love kids, games and food so I am definitely looking forward to the party–especially the opportunity to wear a small cone-shaped birthday hat with the tight elastic- band underneath my chin. 😉
What makes this year’s birthday party unique, is that instead of the typical gift-giving, they will be having a book-exchange party whereby the guests bring a gently used book in exchange for another. This way everyone gets a useful gift to take home and learns something about reducing consumption and giving to others. This is a great idea that can be implemented not only for kids’ parties but for adult gatherings as well! Thanks for helping the world!
