But the best way to celebrate a milestone is to cater to the specific milestone.  Let's take a look at some milestones...

Celebrating Turning 50

For some milestone birthdays, the number itself is significant. Turning 50 is a great example. This milestone birthday celebrates half a century of life!

There are many ways to celebrate turning 50. Some cultures will celebrate turning 50 by giving the person a gold party. This is where everyone in attendance will bring gifts of gold to the milestone birthday celebrant.  (Of course Celebration Stadium's exclusive gold candles are the perfect match.)

Others will have an "Abraham" or "Sarah" theme, depending on the gender. This refers back to the biblical story where Abraham and Sarah celebrate their 50th anniversaries.

Still, others will have a more low-key celebration with close family and friends. But, however you choose to celebrate, turning 50 is definitely a milestone worth celebrating!

Becoming a Senior

Turning 65 is a significant milestone birthday because it means one's officially a senior citizen!

This milestone birthday comes with many perks, like discounts on travel, restaurants, and more. It's also a time to reflect on life and accomplishments.

Reaching 70 Years Old

In many cultures, the number seven is a lucky number. For example, in Chinese culture, the number seven is associated with good luck and happiness. While in many Christian cultures, the number seven is associated with God's perfect number.

Some people choose to have a big party, while others really zero in on the number seven. However, the best way to celebrate is to enjoy your favorite people and activities, travel to places you've never seen, enjoy the littles in your family, and cherish the beautiful moments.
