Is milestone birthdays the big thing now? People spending senseless amounts of money then struggling to pay the bills when they get home?

Without trying to sound like a killjoy, the country seems obsessed with having a big piss up for any occasion, from the buying of a new pair of wellies to celebrating the cat's birthday.

Have I mentioned a piss up anywhere?

Im not a big drinker plus I certainly wont be putting myself in the poorhouse over a Birthday bash but I quite fancy doing something to mark the occasion. Well probably have a nice family trip too, when my other half was 50 a couple of years back we went to Hong Kong somewhere wed never been and were unlikely to ever have gone otherwise.

A couple of things have happened in my life over the last couple of years to make me realise that life is short enough so enjoy while you can in my motto..

True, you didn't. But other potential piss ups were mentioned.

Life is short. Just my point was the potential of people going above budget doing this sort of thing.

Youre a killjoy, whos struggling to pay the bills? If someone wants to do something special to celebrate then grand, grinch!

In the same token, anyone not able to pay for something and struggling to pay the bills will do something to within their budget? Pub curry drinks! 40 milestone was huge party back at mine with friends old and new! Was a blast, though I was looking for Vegas tickets!

Correct Bennydorano. Hawaii island of Kauai is hard to beat, the little bay on the edge of the Marriott hotel there is hard to beat. We were there on honeymoon..always promised ourselves we would go back sometime.

Yeah I've no problems with that. But we all know the times we live in. I see it quite a lot, people doing things ott and putting themselves out doing a big bash, trip or xmas. There's a pressure on people to keep up, especially at Xmas. Plus we have this Facebook thing, people seem to feel the need to make their lives more interesting than everybody else, even if that means spending money they don't really have. So, that's what I was getting at.

yeah, and it was the spending and banks allowing people to have all this credit that helped bring the place down in the first place!

But 50 is the new 40! and with 20 years more work left in ya, you'll be able to apy it off  :o

Theres a certain truth to what Benny says, people do tend to go for the big show off displays nowadays...

From my perspective therell be no party, I run a mile at the thought of being the centre of attention. I would like to do something out of the ordinary to mark the occasion though and I thought where better to ask than on an anonymous Internet forum for suggestions.

If u want something out of the ordinary then The Burning Man festival might be it in the Nevada desert. Go for it
