Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji ki Fathe.

Celebrating birthdays are a western thing its not linked with Sikhi however I personally think that there is nothing wrong with celebrating it and thanking God.

Personally, yes I celebrate it. But not with a cake or a party or any of the 'western' traditions. I have no problem with anyone celebrating birthdays. Your birth is a blessing from Waheguru why not thank God.

I go in front of my guru and say thank you for bringing me into this world. Something like... 'God the years of my life a going by so fast Guru Ji. Thank you for the great life that I have and please please protect me and I don't forget you. May the coming year by your blessing be a good year.'

Well something like that. My mum and dad make parshad and we do ardass in front of guru ji.

I mean its the same ardass I do everyday but its your birthday and you truly reflect on what you have achieved and become. I'm also most of the time a bit sad because another year has gone by but also thankful to my guru that God brought me into this world and God will always protect me.

I wish a happy birthday to everyone I personally know, like close family and close friends, because on that day Waheguru Ji brought them in to this world and how lucky I am.

Please forgive me for my mistakes
