Think back to when you were younger.
Life was simple at the kids' table. The smell of a home-cooked dinner filling the air on a lazy Sunday afternoon and, after dinner, everyone crowding around the TV to watch the last football game of the season.
Fast-forward a few years, when the adults first invited you to their table, and your life changed. Your coming-of-age moment had arrived! This rite of passage is a transition from asking permission to giving notice.
Coming-of-Age Day in Japan honors all the young people who reached age 20 during the past year. This national holiday takes place on the second Monday of January and celebrates their privileges and responsibilities as new adults.
Coming-of-age moments don't come just once in life. Another important coming-of-age moment occurs when you decide to retire. Social Security can help.
