Psychologists say that people’s lives are defined by landmarks that end one period and ushers the start of another. To make these landmarks more memorable, people come up with things such as first communion invitations, birthday parties, etc. To elaborate on these landmarks, birthdays for instance, marks the end of one year and the start of another step towards getting old. Another example is circumcision which marks the end of one religion and the start of another for male Jewish converts. Other landmarks common to most people are the first communion, reaching the age of eighteen, wedding, kid baptism, etc.
