When your big day finally arrives, you can visit your nearest Panera Bread to obtain a free celebratory item from the establishment’s dessert menu.

While I was still child, many people used to comment as to why I should have a birthday party. Truth be told as an adult one should know that birthdays are the same every year and surprise, surprise I am Lenten baby. I wanted pressies, a new dress, pretty cake which mom baked and the well wishers of uncles, aunts and friends – those were the best days. That does not mean I never observed Lent because I was dreaming of my birthday. As children we observed the days and fast of abstinence on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, we collected money for the Lenten campaign from our pocket money, and gave up what we could ice- cream, chocolates and one year tv.
