People sing “Happy Birthday” to Lisa: Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday dear Lisa! Happy birhthday to you! When they finish singing, Lisa blows out the candles on the cake. Then everybody eats cake and ice-cream. After that, Lisa opens her birthday cards and presents. Her family and friends give her toys and clothes for her birthday. In the United States, people of all ages celebrate birthdays. But when an adult has a birthday, there are not a lot of candles on the birthday cake. Many Americans over the age of 30 don’t like to talk about their age. Some people joke every year, “I’m 29 years old today.” Perhaps they do not want to get any older. WHILE - READING
