Birthday Traditions from Around the World
The Hungarians will wish an individual good luck and a happy birthday by pulling on their earlobes.
This tradition will normally take place just before the opening of any birthday presents, while a song is sang that translates to “God bless you live so long so your ears reach your ankles”.
Ear pulled same number of times as age

Given names can be chosen by the parents from an official list of several thousand names (technically, one list for each gender). If the intended name is not on the list, the parents need to apply for approval.

Parents hire an evil clown to follow and torment their child on their birthday. They conclude with a pie in the face for the birthday boy or girl. Nice.
