The 21st birthday was originally the key of the door, the moment of reaching adulthood. Since the voting age was reduced to eighteen, the twenty first birthday may appear to take on less significance, but for many it still represents a great step into the adult world, and is still celebrated by some with the respect that it deserves.
The age of reaching the maturity of an adult goes back to Elizabethan times when the age at which a man was permitted to marry was 21. It is often celebrated in the UK as a family occasion, when parents might provide an event and congratulate the birthday boy or girl with a speech to celebrate the occasion. It is not unusual for the person whose birthday it is to prepare a speech as well.
