The coronavirus is a party pooper. People are trying to celebrate their birthdays, but social distancing won't let them. No more hugs, no more kisses; all they get now are a few best wishes over the phone, and that's it.
However, that doesn't mean folks whose birthdays happened to correspond with the pandemic can't treat themselves. Or cry about it. I mean, it's their day, so they can do whatever the heck they want.
Trying to make the most of it, people are sharing photos of how they're spending this grand occasion under lockdown, and Bored Panda has compiled some of the funniest ones to commemorate them as well. Hip hip hooray.
My Dad Found A Very Appropriate Card For My Cousin’s Birthday Today
To all our Aries and Taurus readers who still want to have a fun get-together with friends and family, you can still do it. But in the virtual space. Create a Google Hangout, a Skype conference call, WhatsApp, Zoom, and FaceTime can also help to date with as many people as you wish. The best part is that they can still sing “Happy Birthday” to you and nobody will interfere with you blowing the candles. Remember, interaction is what gets us through social distancing, and we have all the tools to enjoy it.
For this year's cake, prepare something homemade if you can't order anything. What's that, you don't have any eggs or flour? You can find plenty of unique recipes on the internet.
For My Daughter’s 12th Birthday I Got Her A Dog And Took Her Camping And Fishing. Not Something I’ve Ever Done Alone
You can have a good birthday party all by yourself, too. Little Jacey Rudd did. Well, kinda. The Texas girl was supposed to bowl and play arcade games as well as visit Legoland, but her party plans were canceled amid social distancing guidelines put in place for the coronavirus quarantine.
So, Jacey and her older sister decided to gather some dolls and have a blast with them instead. The girls and their new 'friends' ate a cake their mom picked up from the grocery store, and her grandmother cooked chicken. "[We also] let her spray the Lysol cans to show her how to clean,” mom Brittany Bush-Rudd told The New York Post. “She was so excited to hold the can like an adult.”
“It really made our whole family realize that life is about the small stuff,” Bush-Rudd added. “Everything we did wasn’t much, but she liked it anyway. A kid is thanking you for Lysol and a doll!”
