80th birthday decor
Hill? What hill? What birthday is officially over the hill?
Around a certain age people will start to tell you that you are over the hill. Which was the actual theme for this 80th birthday decor. The Over The Hill theme.
But have you ever stopped to think about what actual age qualifies you for being over the hill? What is this so-called hill they speak of and at what age do we magically become over it? For this 80th birthday theme, the joke was on an old phrase that did not match this youthful, vibrant 80 year old.
A birthday is something that happens to everyone once a year . Unless of course, you’re the Queen and lucky enough to have two. Or born in a Leap year. Then you can make it up as you go along.
In fact, let’s question the phrase being over the hill. Who has the right to tell you when you are old or past your prime? No one. Everyone knows that’s the job of your own brain, around 6 am in winter when you have to get out of bed.
If it were up to us, we would just get rid of this phrase completely. Totally ignore it. For us, one can never be over the hill. So don’t let anyone ever tell you anything different. It’s all figurative talk anyway. There is no hill.

If you don’t feel over the hill, then you’re not.
After all, life isn’t a continuous climb until a certain age, then a slow demise – it’s full of constant hills. With ups and downs. So, frankly, the imagery of the phrase to be over just the one hill is absurd. It just makes no sense.
So in answer to the original question – ‘What birthday is officially over the hill?’ – is that no birthday is. Each birthday, like each person, is wonderfully different, and brings with it new life experience and knowledge.
And as we all know, age is just a number. So don’t let yours, whatever it may be, define you. We’re all children at heart anyway, so let’s continue laughing ‘til our sides ache. Dancing like nobody’s watching. And singing our hearts out when we’re stuck in traffic. Or in the shower.

The benefits of ageing are endless. Sure, there are creaky bones, names and reasons why you went to the grocery store flying out of the head. Not to mention the deepening wrinkles. But recently many people we know have acknowledged the delights of aging. There is so much more! We’ve decided it’s time to celebrate the benefits of getting old.
Its time to enjoy this inevitable aging process. It’s time to be grateful. And notice all the things that are easier and more enjoyable as you go.
