The Most Popular Month For Birthdays

Birthdays are a fun annual occurrence that are unique to each of us, but have you ever thought about how the tradition came to be? The precise origins are still inconclusive, however there are a few historical points that helped with the evolution of how it came to be what it is today:

  • Around 3,000 B.C.E. the bible references a Pharaoh's birthday
  • Greeks lit candles and put them on cakes offered to the lunar goddess, Artemis
  • Ancient Romans celebrated family and friends' birthdays; the government created public holidays for distinguished citizens
  • Christians did not have any birthdays until the fourth century when they celebrated Jesus' birthday, as they thought the celebration was evil due to ties with pagan gods
  • Birthday cake and candles, one for each year of age, plus one more symbolizing hope to live another year, came out of eighteenth-century Germany
  • The late nineteenth century Industrial Revolution brought mass production, allowing bakeries to make cakes at a lower price
