One of My Favorite 13th Birthday Wishes

The wish below hits upon a few important facts of life for teens, making it one of my top picks. For me, it speaks the truth about being a teenager, yet it's fun enough to make many of the potholes that adolescence brings humorous.

This is not a bad way to introduce the soon-to-be 13 year old in your life ready for the teenage years.

Happy 13th birthday! You're traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of acne and anxiety but of voice change—a journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of puppy love. Your next stop: The Adolescence Zone.

Happy 13th birthday! Today, you are officially an adolescent, with all the privileges and responsibilities that come with it. That could only mean one thing: it's your turn to take out the trash. 

I can't believe that you're already 13 years old and a full-fledged adolescent. You have so much to look forward to. Being a teenager rocks! Happy 13th birthday!

Wow, you're 13 years old. Everything they say about this age is true. Enjoy every acne-filled, grounded moment of it. Happy 13th birthday!

Happy 13th birthday! Did you know that the number "13" is a so-called "happy number". May every day as a 13 year old be filled with more happiness than you can take. 

Turning 13 years old and becoming a teenager are one of the few times in life when really BIG changes happen to you. Enjoy the adventure that awaits you. Happy 13th birthday! 

So much has been said (and most of it bad) about reaching the age of 13 and metamorphosing into a, gulp, teenager. Don't listen to that talk. Turning 13 is wonderful. Being a teenager sucks! Happy 13th birthday!

Hints & Tips

13th Birthday Wishes - Birthday Messages for 13 Year Olds

How do I create unique 13th birthday wishes?

What you choose as a 13th birthday message matters. 13 is a major milestone birthday. 

For boys and girls, turning 13 signifies the beginning of the teen years...and all the wonderful things that come with it, like angst, insecurities, attitude, exploration, you name it.

Empathizing with the 13-year-old boys and girls of today, you should try to bring comforting, uplifting feelings to any newly minted teenager who receives a birthday message from you..

So be careful when you're writing your 13th birthday wishes. How should you proceed? Short version: you can be funny or serious, depending on the teen's personality.

Long version:

  • Take the "funny" or "happy" route with your 13th birthday wishes if the teen has a sense of humor and is an extrovert. 
  • Be serious — using a philosophical, inspirational, sentimental, clever or cool tone — if the birthday boy or girl is an introvert and overly sensitive by nature.

Either way, you should draft 13th birthday wishes that or begin with a compliment. Sincere praise is always a big "plus" when you're dealing with teenagers, especially when they're just entering the weird, wild, wonderful world of adolescence.

I can assure you that any compliment you include in your birthday greeting will be appreciated, even if the 13 year old birthday boy or girl, in response to your message, grimaces in mock disgust.

Ultimately, what actually makes great birthday greetings for a 13 year old have such incredible healing powers? Empathy.

In other words, go back to the time you were turning 13 and try to remember what made you feel rotten and, in turn, what made you feel better. And go from there.

Just how hard can turning 13 years old be? See all the big changes the average teen endures. Then, guide yourself accordingly when you write your 13th birthday wishes.
