Are There Any Colors That Symbolize 70?
Many colors symbolize the 70th birthday, so don’t worry if you aren’t into every color scheme. Typical shades for a more upscale birthday include black and silver with gold accents. Think shiny, but keep it classy. For a less formal feel, try red, green, and yellow decor or flowers. If you want a palette specific to a woman’s 70th, try a combination of cream and rose pink.
Is 70 a Milestone Birthday?
Yes! 70 is a milestone birthday, which means it’s usually accompanied by large celebrations and many opportunities to reflect on the past and future decades. Milestone birthdays show appreciation for aging, which is something most of us don’t often do.
However, this doesn’t mean that milestone birthdays are the only ones we should be celebrating. If you miss someone’s 70th birthday, there’s no need to beat yourself up. Be there for 71 if you can, or throw your own belated event to let the birthday gal know how loved she is. Every birthday is a chance to take a moment to show your gratitude and love for that special person in your life.
70th Birthday Celebrations Around the World
Every culture has unique traditions, customs, and celebrations they partake in when it comes to birthdays. Chinese people tend only to celebrate specific years. 70 happens to be one of them. Why, you ask? In Chinese traditions, 60 is seen as a significant year because it symbolizes an entire zodiac circle. Every 10 years after that, the celebrations continue.
Similarly, 77th birthdays are milestone events in Japanese culture as this age is considered “happy” or a “joyous year.” A Japanese person’s 77th birthday commemorates good fortune and is seen as a rite of passage.
Great presents for women over 70 include cozy attire, self-care supplies, and, of course, chocolate. Let us know your go-to-gifts in the comments, and don’t forget to share this post to help others find the perfect present for their loved ones.
