    I'm so excited, it's my 18th birthday in 5 days (the 16th) and I want it to be awesome. Any suggestions?

    Here's what I did:

    - Two TV's, two Xbox 360's, back to back, hooked up to system link and XBL.
    - A quality poker set.
    - My best friends.

    In the US, alcohol isn't legal until 21. There may be a couple state exceptions, but not many.

    Anywhere you think of me.
    Throw a party, invite lots of chicks and have lots of booze. There isn't a best way to spend your birthday but lots of good ways.

    *insert typical hookers and booze post here*

    But really...I personally find having a little party amongst friends to be the most fun. For my 18th birthday, me and my friends went swimming in my pool, pigged out on pizza, played Xbox while blasting music, and just hung out. It was a blast, and we did the same thing on my 19th birthday last month.

    Granted, not the same girlfriend anymore (thank God [​IMG] )but the day was a blast.

    Sit at home and play videogames.

    Pretty sure I stopped celebrating my birthday (aside from presents and cake thanks to my parents/sister) when I was 13.

    We didn't do much on my 18th either. It was just another normal day. We ended up going to the beach that weekend and played with my new set of Persona cards, then went bowling with a couple of my close friends, but that's really it. I guess it's different for everyone, but I never really saw 18 as a big deal. If anything I always thought it was 21 because of the drinking age, but I don't drink either so..

    Hope you enjoy it! Do what you want to do - I suggest spending time with your friends and family and doing something you like.

    On the day before my 18th i hung out with all my friends and went to a Theme Park and an Arcade. Then on my birthday i just hung out with my Brother and Dad for a while then went to dinner with the whole family.

    I had a pretty tame birthday i guess [​IMG]. Though, my brother said he is getting me drunk for my 21st birthday.

    I guess you could use your birthday money to buy a mass of lotto tickets. I worked overtime for my 18th birthday. :/ Not that big of a deal. 21st I caught up on much needed sleep. I can say that was a good birthday [​IMG]

    A birthday is a birthday, do something that you'd enjoy. [​IMG]

    Try going out somewhere, like a go-kart track or Six Flags or something.
