Silly Billy is soon to be Twenty One Years Old

Silly Billy’s 21st Birthday is coming up on the 1st May 2018

Bill Deakin will be celebrating the coming of age of Silly Billy’s Toy Shop in Hebden Bridge, one of the last remaining Independent Toy Shops. On the 1st May 2018 Silly Billy’s Toy Shop will have been established for twenty-one years in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.

From small beginnings and with great growth until the onset of Internet Shopping, Silly Billy’s has done enormously well to keep going in what are difficult times. With the corporates selling Toys as large competition, Silly Billy’s has eclipsed Toys r Us UK which went into administration in February of this year (2018)

From Tuesday 1st May until Monday midnight 7th May we will have some exciting Competitions and Raffles for everyone to take part in.

7 Ways To Make Sure December Birthdays Don’t Get Lost In The Shuffle

Ah, December birthdays. Between the holiday madness and New Year’s Eve preparations, December birthdays can get lost in the chaos. Never fear, though: We asked the HuffPost Parents community to share the ways that they make their family’s December birthdays special. Read on and add any ideas you have to the comments below.

Thought this was worth re-publishing as this blog’s Author has his birthday on December 15th and the author’s eldest son on December 16th, plus a good friend has his birthday on December 25th, which could be considered even worse. Here are some top-tips for anyone soon to have a December Birthday.

1. Use non-holiday wrapping paper for birthday gifts. It might seem like a no-brainer, but find wrapping paper that’s special (whether it’s Star Wars or Minions) so the birthday gifts feel unique.

2. Consider having a birthday party on their half birthday instead — or a few weeks later in January — when friends are more available to celebrate. If you move their birthday celebration, invite family members over for a party or dinner on the actual day to make it special.

3. Talk to them about holiday decorations beforehand. If you have an early December birthday, hold off putting up holiday decorations until your loved ones have celebrated their day. You could even get a Christmas tree and use it as a “birthday tree,” then decorate it for Christmas after the birthday has passed. If it’s a late December birthday, remove holiday decorations by then, so that all the focus is on the birthday.

4. Speaking of decorating: balloons, streamers and more are always festive for a birthday! Ditch the garlands and bows and go big with balloons.

5. Make the day special by letting them pick the breakfast, lunch, or dinner menu. 

6. If you have a Christmas Eve or Christmas birthday in the family, give Santa a slice of cake instead of cookies.

7. Choosing separate themes for gifts — like clothes for his or her birthday, and toys for Christmas — can make each feel unique.
