109 Pics Of People Celebrating Birthdays During The Pandemic To Show How Social Distancing Changed Their Parties

The coronavirus is a party pooper. People are trying to celebrate their birthdays, but social distancing won't let them. No more hugs, no more kisses; all they get now are a few best wishes over the phone, and that's it.


However, that doesn't mean folks whose birthdays happened to correspond with the pandemic can't treat themselves. Or cry about it. I mean, it's their day, so they can do whatever the heck they want.


Trying to make the most of it, people are sharing photos of how they're spending this grand occasion under lockdown, and Bored Panda has compiled some of the funniest ones to commemorate them as well. Hip hip hooray.
