What to Write in a 15th Birthday Card

Every birthday deserves a special birthday message. 15 is not a major milestone, but it is a minor milestone. At 15, you're still legally a minor, and 15 is a round number. But the main reason to write something special in a 15-year-old's birthday card is that everyone only gets to turn this age once. If there's something you need to say related to this year's celebration, this is your chance.

15 is the age of figuring out who you are. It brings angst for independence. It is a time for the development of competence. It is the age at which many begin to explore and develop their interests. Social peer groups solidify around 15. At this age, you are the epitome of cool. If you're nerdy, then you are a cool nerd. If you're athletically or musically inclined, then you are a cool jock or musician. Above all else, make sure that any birthday wishes for a 15-year-old are cool. But that could mean writing something funny, inspirational, meaningful, or smart. Any of these can work, so think about the person you are writing to and consider what sort of message they would like to receive.
