wow you mean your brother in law and sister in law started to quarrel and then everything went like wrong??? that's definitely unexpected. fortunately for us, we haven't had that experience. for us, birthday celebrations are usually a family affair. only when our children are at the age when they want to bring their friends do we have one. and when we do, we just invite their friends and our nearest relatives. we don't really have any games. the kids usually eat and watch tv or they might talk and play as well on their own. we prepare small gifts for all the kids that we give out before they leave. they're usually really happy with that.

Hi marketing07.This is an unexpecting party.I can see you are unhappy through the lines.Everyone hopes to have a great party.For example me.I like simple party,just have a dinner at home with family.We don't have a cake,just families around the table talking and eating happily.Now people have lots of pressure and we don't have enough time for family.So a simple family dinner is what i wanted

Oh my, that doesn't sound like it was a good experience at all marketing07. With any celebration or special occasion, I think we all pray that no arguments, quarrels or fights break out and ruin what should be a memorable day. I expect in a birthday celebration a cake with candles, lots of food and drink, presents and of course, to be enveloped by friends and family
