10 Baffling Birthday Traditions From Around The World

New Year’s Birthday

Vietnam has a very peculiar way of celebrating birthdays. Instead, of individuals marking the day of their birth, everyone in the country takes part in festivities that take place on the Vietnamese New Year’s Day, which is usually on the same day as Chinese New Year, with families holding large parties.

Ear Tugging

When it is your birthday in Hungary, it is traditional for friends and family to tug firmly on the ears of the person celebrating. This is usually done after the gifts have been exchanged, with each person at the party having a go while everyone sings a song to wish the birthday boy or girl a long and prosperous life.
