W HAT ARE YOU DOING TO DO ON YOUR BIRTHDAY? Maria Guadalupe Mérida, Yucatán My twenty-first birthday is on Saturday, and I´m going to out with some friend´s. To wish me a happy birthday, they are going to pull on my ear 21 times – once for each year. It´s an old custom. Some people pull on the ear just once, but my friend´s are very traditional. Gabriela Euán Pool Tomorrow is my sixtieth birthday. It´s a special birthday, so we´re going to have a family ceremony. I´m probably going to get some money in lucky envelopes from my relatives. My mother is going to cook noodles – noodles are for a long life, My husband is going to be 60 tomorrow. In Japan, the sixtieth birthday is called Kankery – it´s the beginning of a new life. The color red represents a new life, so children often give sometimes red as a present. What are our children going to give him? A red hat and vest.
