Is it normal for girls to count down to their birthdays? Or is this a special occasion given what turning 21 allows someone to do?

I think she wants us to have time to think of a birthday present for her.

I'm thinking 21= pint of beer.

It would be pretty hard for anyone in the blogosphere who doesn't know who I am to buy me a birthday present. A virtual pint of beer just doesn't sound so exciting.

Not all girls count down to their birthdays and I'm not really into my birthday but 21 is a big deal, and I'm a lil excited. That's all.

Happy (early) birthday! Not to be a downer, but your 21st birthday is the last good one. :(

Out of curiosity, is most beer and/or liquor kosher by Orthodox standards? Just curious. Of course I know that, at least according to many Jews I've met, we aren't big on drinking. But I digress...

In the old days, you'd finally be able to vote. But 21 still feels cool. Of course I'm quite a bit past that age and 25 is the next big landmark. Maybe I'll start a countdown too....

NewJew...It's a complicated issue, but quickly...

All non-flavored domestic beers, and most imported beers are fine.

Booze is more complicated...

Most Scotch, vodka, gin, bourbon is fine, but liqours are problematic.

Since when do Jews celebrate birthdays? It's a totally goyishe custom. The only birthday we mark in any way is the bar mitzvah, and that's only out of legal necessity.

Remember, there's only one birthday celebration mentioned in the Torah.
