  3. Everybody Celebrates: A first birthday is a big deal not just for the family but for everyone nearby. Firing crackers brings everyone together, sharing in the excitement and creating a big, happy party atmosphere.
  4. Old Stories, New Celebrations: Sometimes, families have been doing this for a long, long time. It could be a tradition passed down from grandparents or a custom that started in the community ages ago. Lighting crackers is like keeping an old story alive in a fun and bright way.
  5. Good Luck Starts Now: Making noise and lights on the first birthday is a way of saying, “Hey, let’s start this new year of life with good luck!” It’s like a sparkly wish for a future filled with joy and success.
  6. Happy Thanks Day: Parents and families also use the crackers to say a big ‘thank you.’ They’re grateful for the gift of the baby, and the crackling celebration is a way of showing how much they appreciate the joy the little one brings.
