It's always nice to get celebrated. Most of us get to celebrate our birthday with our friends and family and maybe a few more acquaintances. Some of us might get a round of applause at a restaurant or maybe at work, but only monarchs have a entire nation stop what they are doing to celebrate their birthday.
