Is it important to make birthday parties for children?
It’s unimportant. I’m not going to say you should not make birthday parties, but I certainly will say that it’s unimportant. Make Chanukah parties for children. Make chamishah asar beshvat parties for children. Make Purim parties for children. Besides the big party that you make for everybody else on these days, you could make a little party for children too. If you want, it’s a good idea to make Rosh Chodesh parties for children. But birthday parties? I won’t say it’s a good thing to make it. I’m not going to discourage it because I don’t want to make people unhappy but I won’t say it’s a good thing. Certainly, it’s not necessarily a good thing.
