Coming of Age Day

Coming of Age Day

Many cultures have had their own traditions for coming of age ceremonies and rituals throughout history. These rituals can vary depending on culture and religion. Modern celebrations often include a party or other festivities. The celebration might take place on the individual’s actual birthday or it might include all of the children of the same ages celebrating together. However, the official celebration of Coming of Age Day dates back to 1948. The original date was January 15, and it was observed for many decades on this day. The Happy Monday System was established in 2000 and the day was moved to the second Monday in January. In 2018, the Japanese government agreed to lower the age to 18 years. It is also celebrated by all those who were born between April 2 and April 1, of the following year. These young people can legally smoke, drink alcohol and vote in elections. This ornamental event goes beyond clothing and includes elaborate hairstyles and special shoes. Many times, these Coming of Age Day celebrations are held in high schools gyms or city halls. Local government officials often make an appearance and small gifts are presented. The young adults can celebrate the day by themselves, going to bars and going to parties. These are some fun ways to celebrate the day: Parents, teachers, and other significant people in young adult’s lives might want to host a gathering. Consider making Coming of Age Day a school tradition. Teachers and school staff might be interested in this idea. It might include a ceremony where awards and gifts are presented to students who are turning 18. For entertainment, you might give each student a coming-of-age novel. Perhaps Coming of Age Day is simply a celebration that involves a party with snacks, drinks and dancing.
