17 Fun Ways People Celebrate Birthdays in Quarantine

 As the year comes to a close, it's setting in just how much time has flown with quarantines, lockdowns, and the pandemic. Everything from playdates and school lessons to work discussions and family dinners seem to be happening over Zoom calls or while maintaining 6 feet distance. Perhaps the loss that has hit us the most is the loss of celebrations. Gatherings of your family and friends to rejoice over a well-deserved promotion, a festive holiday, and of course, birthdays. 

As your birthday rolls around the corner, it's impossible not to feel a pang of wistfulness and want for the festivities we had before. These are a few people who felt that pang very recently, and whose loved ones decided that no birthday shall go uncelebrated this year. Sure, these makeshift parties may not be the full swing birthday bashes we're accustomed to. However, they show us that creativity, a little love, and lots of humor is the best way to celebrate any occasion - without or without a Coronavirus nipping at our heels.
