When I spoke of birthday parties, they (Aborigines) listened intently. I talked of the cake, songs, and gifts-an increase in candles each year as we got older. "Why would you do that?" they inquired. "To us celebration means something special. There isn't anything special about getting older. It takes no effort. It just happens!"
" If you don't celebrate getting older," I said, "what do you celebrate?"
"Getting better," was the reply." "We celebrate if we are a better, wiser person this year than last. Only you would know, so it is you who tells the others when it is time to have the party."
