Why Birthday Candles Blowing?
- Nov 07, 2017 -

There are arguments that this custom first started in ancient Greece. In ancient Greece, the goddess of the moon, Artemis, was worshiped. Every year, a birthday celebration was held for her. On the altar, there was a cake made of flour and honey, lit with many lit candles. They cast the light of the candle as the moon's glory to express the special worship of the moon goddess. Later, when the ancient Greeks celebrated the birthday of their children, they also liked to place cakes on the table, insert many lit candles on the cake, but also increased the content of the candle that was blown out. They believe that a burning candle has some mysterious and covert power. When a birthday maker silently makes a wish in his heart, he can blow away all the candles at one go. This custom has spread to the present and has become popular in many countries.
