A birthday bagYour fingers trace along crisp edges of the plastic bag. And for a silent moment your imagination springs free and dances in excitement for what is awaiting inside.

Your fingers plunge into smooth tissue paper, expectantly, searching for answers to the mystery, and you become lost in joyous thoughts, playful ideas for the year ahead.

Your fingers grasp onto your presents and you can’t help but guess away: A ball? A book? A teddy bear? Until your eyes finally meet your birthday gifts.

Then your bright, toothy smile meets your loved ones’ eyes.
