Is Happy Posthumous Birthday Correct? Here’s What We Know!

Birthdays are celebrations of life and the remembrance of growth. They are usually important days and we treat them as special.

But what if the birthday is for the dead?

Is that right? What’s its purpose?

This article will cover all that.

Is Saying ‘Happy Posthumous Birthday’, Correct?

Is Happy Posthumous Birthday Correct

Yes, wishing members of our family and friends that are dead a happy post-humous birthday is okay and correct.

Even though our loved ones are no longer with us physically, it wouldn’t change the fact that they are our sisters, brothers, fathers, mothers, best friends, etc.

If this fact can’t be changed after death, we should all take celebrating their birthday as a responsibility. People usually celebrate death anniversaries which is a good way of remembering the dead, but what about their birthday?

The day this wonderful personality came into the world. Without that day coming into a reality, you won’t meet them and won’t have that beautiful memory you have today.

Why Do People Celebrate A Posthumous Birthday?

The core reason posthumous birthdays are celebrated is to remember our loved ones on the other side

Families and friends who celebrate the birthday of their deceased ones have them deep in their hearts.

Another reason is we celebrate them to honor them. Many of our loved ones died after facing a battle. A significant number of women die when bringing life into the world.

According to UNICEF, the global maternal mortality ratio, which refers to death resulting from pregnancy or childbirth, is 211 per 100,000 live births. 211 lives are a lot.

The question I ask people who know about posthumous birthdays and don’t celebrate them is, “Would you love a birthday celebration in heaven” they always reply, “Yes,” and I respond, “Neither God nor angels will do a birthday for you in heaven, only your loved ones on earth will surprise you in heaven as the celebrate your birthday on earth.”

The heroes who died when giving birth to people who will one day be great activists, religious leaders, surgeons, and loving partners deserve a birthday celebration.

People celebrate posthumous birthdays to mourn their loved ones. After a burial, people mourn their deceased ones to show them how important they are and how much they miss them.

Although our deceased ones want us to move on after their death, wherever they are, they are grateful we set a time for them each year.

Not mourning our loved ones after their death or occasionally would hurt them. It will make them feel that they meant little to you during their days on earth. To make our deceased ones feel loved, we celebrate their birthdays.

People celebrate posthumous birthdays because their loved ones want them to

The question you might be asking now is how do you know what your loved one wants since they are dead and communication has been breached? I am not a psychic, nor do I possess the power to speak to the dead but think of this.

When your loved ones were alive, they were thrilled when they were wished a happy birthday, when you throw a birthday party for them, when you gift them on their birthdays.

This is still the same after they are dead. Death didn’t change the fact that they love birthday celebrations, so keep doing it.

A surprising reason people celebrate posthumous birthdays is to recognize death

When a birthday is held for a deceased person, recognizing death here brings people who have gathered for the celebration into sober reflection. It makes them realize that one day will be their turn.

Some families, in their speeches during the celebration, emphasize the inevitable fate of death that will visit us all someday and make us understand how death can separate us from those we love to urge us to take any measures to avert this irreversible trauma

We celebrate happy posthumous birthdays to ensure our loved ones live on

Are you aware that our deceased ones can live forever? If you don’t know, when we do this in memory of our deceased ones, they will never die.

Polytheists (people who practice polytheism and believe in the five elemental beings fire, water, air, earth, and spirit) believe they can communicate with their deceased ones as long as they have their possession and remember them.

Another good example of this is Jesus Christ, the son of God (Christians) or the great prophet (Judaists), whose birthday is celebrated on the 25th of December every year.

Although he is not physically present, he lives on because people remember him through different ceremonies.

Is Happy Posthumous Birthday Correct

Death is irreversible. It is beyond our human control so bear it in mind that one day the people you love dearly, including yourself will be no more.

It is so important that when we are living, we make each day count and impact the lives of others so we won’t be forgotten. We don’t need to be scared of death. It is the beginning of a wonderful adventure.

Although death can leave us with pain and regret if we don’t finish a business here on earth, it isn’t a reason to be so afraid of it. Embrace it as nature, and may God bless us all with longevity.
