It can occasionally seem that the older you get, the less exciting holidays become. Are birthday parties ever going to be as fun as when they were hosted at bowling alleys? Well, speaking as someone who continues to adore each and every celebration no matter my age, yes. Furthermore, what's Halloween without a bag of hard-earned candy? Good news again: Holidays can get even better with age—birthdays, New Year's Eve and Halloween included.
