What is the Significance of the 21st Birthday?
While it’s easy to believe that “any reason” would suffice when it comes to throwing a party, have you ever considered the origins and significance of the 21st birthday?
It’s widely observed and frequently lavishly celebrated worldwide; however, in Australia, many things become legal at the age of 18, including the purchase of alcohol and the right to vote, rather than at the age of 21 as in the United States. So, where did the 21st century begin, and why are they significant in Australia? Let’s see what we can find out! The 21st birthday was inspired by a young man being groomed for knighthood. There were three phases to becoming a knight in medieval times, each lasting seven years.
Seven years old – The boy begins his training as a page. The youngster, essentially a Knight’s servant, would learn the skills needed to become a Knight while serving as a messenger and other basic servant chores.
The youngster would become a Squire when he was 14 years old. The Squire’s principal responsibilities would include carrying armor and shields, caring for weapons and armor, and activities such as saddling the Knight’s horse. This was also the first time the boy had fought alongside the Knight. The Squire would frequently serve as a flagbearer and would be allowed to distinguish himself in battle. A Squire’s job would also include ensuring the Knight was buried correctly if he was killed in one of these conflicts.
Twenty-one years old – At 21, the boy was officially designated a Knight if he completed his two previous positions. While attending multiple bouts of combat may not sound like a lot of fun, what about all the parties? They are, after all, a more recent invention. The legal drinking, smoking, and attending nightclubs age in the United States is 21.
As a result, a young adult’s 21st birthday marks a crucial turning point in their life because they can now legally engage in more adult activities. Given how much of American culture Australia has assimilated, it’s no surprise we’ve accepted this as well.
Apart from that, the legal drinking age in Australia was not always 18 in all states. In 1905, New South Wales changed the legal age to 18 from 21. Queensland and Tasmania were the first to adopt it in 1974, followed by South Australia in 1971 and Western Australia in 1970. In the US, this special celebration refers to the ability to consume your first (legal) alcoholic beverage, but in medieval times, it was the time when a noble young lad was considered “of age” and knighted.
In the Netherlands, the 21st birthday is commemorated with a lot of fanfare.
The 21st birthday is commonly referred to as the ‘crown year’ because it is believed that this is the year in which young adults begin to be considered kings and queens. Not quite the same as getting knighted, but I’m sure I wouldn’t mind if this were the rule at my house (or should that be a palace?)
Newly crowned Dutch people are usually given a more significant presence, as well as a chair for the dining room table decked with paper streamers and flowers lovingly made by their parents. On top of that, they’ll be served a stack of delectable pancakes. Finally, a supper fit for kings (and queens) will likely make for a unique 21st birthday celebration.
