    Most people around the world celebrate their special day. Whether they decide to throw a big party or just have a small gathering, the highlight of a birthday celebration is, of course, a birthday cake with candles. However, in some cultures certain anniversaries are not celebrated as it’s considered bad luck. Tune in to find out why.

    Do you like celebrating your day and do you look forward to it?

    Each birthday is a symbolic new year for most of us, when we take a look on the years gone by to assess our achievements and set the new goals. For some birthdays are happy landmarks that are celebrated with pomp and circumstance, for others it’s just another year that’s passed by.

    Looking Forward discusses what having a birthday party means to Konstantin Remchukov, who’s the editor-in-chief of the Nezavisimya daily (Independent newspaper).
