Why 21st Birthday Is Special In Australia

The traditional tale dates back to medieval times in Australia, where 21 years of age was marked for a boy groomed into a knighthood. But nowadays, naturally, the idea evolved beyond the gender boundaries, and girls and boys both celebrate their 21st birthday with equal excitement and independence. The most interesting tradition in practice is “handing over the keys” to your daughter or son. It symbolizes the sharing of assets, and there is a sense of collective ownership which is a very beautiful gesture. Good food, drinks and parties are a staple element of the birthday party night.

Get this printed on the birthday of your elder or smaller brother hitting 21. Remember, you can custom design by changing the colour combinations of the graphics or the fabric colour of the shirt. Choose the colour which is your brother’s favourite.
