What's so special about a Sweet 16?
I have always wondered, what is so special about a girl turning 16?. Why is it that their 16th birthday has to be the high end one? I have seen that show on MTV called 'super sweet 16' and it always leaves me in shock because of all the money the parents spend on a birthday party. Sure, you may say that those are celebrity parents and they have the money, but it also applies to common folk also. I know plenty of people who have had sixteenth birthday parties and their parents literally spend thousands of dollars on it. Aside from the money, why is it at age sixteen? why not eighteen? sixteen is the most random number to have a crazy birthday on.
