In our family, we usually celebrate our kids' half birthday by purchasing them a 1/2 pie from the store. However this year I decided to try searching the internet for a 1/2 pie pan, in the off chance that I could actually find one. What do you know; Amazon sells one! It is called the Split Decision pie pan and I am in love with it. It cost a few dollars more than one 1/2 pie which is going to save me a lot of money over the years.
It is actually better than what I had in mind because it has multiple options. You can bake 1/2 a pie, two different 1/2 pies, or swap out the bottom and bake a whole pie. So it also is great for the times that you can't decide on a flavor that will make everyone happy. :)
Whether you want to give our tradition a try or you want to have harmony at Thanksgiving, you should get this pie pan!

Whereas a birthday celebration might include friends and extended family, as well as a cake and perhaps some special outing, the half birthday could be more personalized. It could be celebrated just with members of the household, enjoying together the celebrant's favorite meal followed by cupcakes.
Every person present could prepare a speech of encouragement for the celebrant, complimenting and praising them on character strengths and achievements. This would likely build self esteem in the celebrant, and contribute to comradery among household members.
