Twenty is the age considered as the beginning of adulthood. It is also the minimum legal age for voting, drinking, and smoking. But along with these freedoms come the responsibilities of adult society.At the ceremony, young people typically hear congratulatory speeches, make a pledge to be respectable members of society, and receive some sort of commemorative gift.
