How to Write a Birthday Essay


Write a birthday essay to commemorate the important day that an individual appeared on Earth. Birthday essays are usually required because the person is having a party or celebration and the essay will be read to a group. Birthday essays can also be written for your child, spouse, friend or parent, to be given to them along with a gift or a card. No matter the reason for writing the essay, make it special and meaningful for that person.

  • Use the typical essay format of an introduction, body and conclusion. In the introductory paragraph, include information on the individual's birthday, her age and why you are writing the essay. The introduction should also state how you know the individual and why you are writing the essay for her.

  • Research for the main portion of the birthday essay by looking up information on the individual if she is well-known. Write down important events in her life. Talk to people who know her and ask them to tell you anecdotes, as well as reasons why the individual affected their lives positively.

  • Write the body of the essay. The body should include at least three paragraphs that each contain between three to five sentences. You want to include information on why the individual is important, how he has touched people's lives and accomplishments that he has completed in his lifetime.

  • Finish the essay by writing the conclusion paragraph. Summarize the basic information that you presented in the essay without bringing up new points. Keep the conclusion short and simple. Thank people for listening or reading the essay if you plan to share it with an audience.

  • Print a copy to give to the person. Proofread your essay for grammar and spelling mistakes. Allow someone else to read it to give you feedback, and make any necessary changes.
