To people in our country, 80 years old is a special milestone in everyone’s life as the old people are respected for their experience and wisdom. Thus, in 80th birthday celebration, people often hold a big and extremely memorable party, inviting a lot of people to attend.

My grandfather’s 80th birthday celebration took place in a convention near his house. It was such a quality time for my whole family and all our beloved relatives and friends to sit together. Everyone tried to choose a special gift for my grandpa. I was a little bit astonished when I saw the number of gifts my grandpa received, which meant how much my grandpa was loved. People also sent greetings to him, which are mostly about health. Then, people enjoyed the party with delicious and well-prepared food.

However, the most lovely part of the celebration was the time after party. When all of invitees had left, our family gathered together and took a trip down memory lane. It reminded me of the good old days, when I was knee high to a grasshopper and still a little stubborn girl who always got into trouble. No matter how big a problem I got into, I could always ask my grandpa for helps or advice as he would never turn his back on me.

Time flies so fast, but memory still lasts. Grandpa and his 80th birthday celebration would definitely be one of my sweetest memories.
