Why is a BIRTHDAY important to everyone? Because it’s a time when a person acknowledges the anniversary of his or her birth. People often celebrate their birthdays with a gift, party, or some special act.Did you know?
The idea of celebrating a birthday is a pagan (religious) tradition. In the past, Christians didn’t celebrate birthdays because of the link to paganism because as per pagans, evil spirits lurked on days of major changes, like birthdays. Ancient Greeks believed that every person had a spirit that attends on people’s birthdays and kept watch.
However, now that people have changed and the mindset has changed, we all have started taking it in a positive note and started celebrating their birthdays. Here are the reasons why birthdays should be celebrated?
Birth is the beginning of life- God has created us to serve a purpose in this world; every time we celebrate a birthday, it indicates that it is another chance to fulfill our mission.
It is an expression of thanking God for being born and still being alive!
Chance for a refresher-Birthdays is a refresher, a chance to regeneration; so no matter how things went yesterday or last year, we always can try again.

The actual, first birthday cake was made in Germany in the Middle Ages; the Germans would celebrate birthdays with cake, calling the celebration Kinder fest. However, the relation between cakes and birthdays may date back to the ancient Romans. The traditional Roman cakes were a course, bread-like product, and later became a much sweeter version, called Geburtstagorten. In the 15th century - Bakeries in Germany marketed one-layer cakes for birthdays and weddings, and that's how the modern birthday cake was born.
During the 17th century - The birthday cake took on its contemporary form with multiple layers, icing, and decoration with flowers. However, these cakes were only affordable to wealthy people.
In the 18 century - Cakes became accessible to the lower class with the industrial revolution and increase of goods and materials.Why Candles?
There are various theories related to this. Few scholars believe that the Greeks would make round cakes to honor Artemis, the goddess of the moon. The candles on the cake represent the moonlight, and the smoke from the candles carried their wishes to the God's living in the sky.
Some scholars believe the tradition started in Germany, wherein a candle on cake represents “the light of life.”
Today, western cultures celebrate any occasion with cakes, candles, flowers, and songs. The number of candles (in a birthday cake) usually represents the age of the birthday boy/girl. People believe that a silent wish must be made while blowing out the candles; the wish cannot be shared with anyone, or it will not come true.Cakes in Different Cultures!
