What will you be doing for the 18th birthday celebration?! You may have to start planning quite soon ;)
In our family we don't have an 18 th, this is the big one until the 21 st. The game changer was legislation a few years ago making the parent hosts criminally responsible if an 17 yo drinks alcohol at an 18 th, or underage drinking at any party. The beauty of a 16 th, is we just say strictly no alcohol.
For those who don't know, in Australia drinking alcohol isn't allowed by law under 18 yo.
