In this article, we like to go over trends we have in both past and present first birthday parties? the first birthday is such a significant milestone and a special cake and special first birthday clothing is no exception.
First up, let’s take a peek at birthday celebrations in history, shall we?
Who hold records in history for birthday celebrations
Did you know that the Egyptian pharaohs hold the first records of birthday celebrations?
However, studies have shown that Egyptians celebrated their birthday, it was not on the physical day they were born, but the day they were crowned to be kings.
This event was a significant day as Pharaoh’s considered this as the day they would transfer into gods.
The beginning of the calendar
Before it was possible to celebrate any birthdays at all, we had to
know when our day of birth was right?
And how could you possibly tell when your birthday is without a calendar?
Ancient people mainly kept track of time by sun and moon, but with time, the Ancient people recognised and learned that the moon phases kept repeating themselves. They wrote down Repetitive cycles when detected.
With this breakthrough of recognising those repetitive cycles, the start of the very first calendars was born. By marking down patterns of these repetitive cycles, the opportunity to keep track of birthdays, anniversaries and other significant events became a reality—this is the first beginning of the well-know calendar.
Was there always a cake with birthday celebrations?
Generally speaking, cakes are most definitely an unmissable part of today’s birthday celebration, especially for children’s celebrations, the cake is a crucial element to make the party memorable.
It is believed the record of the first birthday cake was held in Germany. Firstly the cake would be more like a bread cake, later in time the cake is made sweeter. Every year the child lived, a candle was placed on the cake, and one for the year to come.
In history, the cake was more accessible for the rich, as sugar was a
luxury product. When sugar became more accessible, the cake was more commonly used in celebrations of a regular household.
The Greeks get credit for birthday candles as a tribute to Lunar goddess, Artemis. The Greek created a moon-shaped cake with candles.
The cake with the candles Symbolising the glowing of the moon. Gods are playing a big part in Greek culture. The candles also symbolise sending a message of prayer and blowing out the cake’s candles express shipping your wish to the gods.
How did we celebrate Children birthday’s in the past?
Since the 12th century, celebrating kids’ birthday parties has been acknowledged, but birthdays used to be for the noble people only in the old days. The crown worn with birthday costumes today may still result from the history where only worthy people were celebrating their birthdays.
Nowadays people tend to spend a lot of money on children birthdays, especially for babies first birthday. It is milestone parents often want to celebrate in abundance, and quite a few dollars are happily spent.
Often there are special theme cakes made by professional bakers or parents bake cakes for the celebration at home. The other thing quite popular today as of today is a unique smash cake. A trend we see commonly now is a photo session done from baby enjoying the smash cake while the baby is wearing a special cake smash outfit.
There are many special birthday outfits for babies and children available nowadays, and there are special babies’ first birthday clothing to make the day extra special. However there often is more choice for girls, for smash cake outfits there are more cute options available for boys.
How do you celebrate your babies first birthday?
There are many ways to celebrate the day your baby was born. Of course, this doesn’t have to be a big party; big celebrations are not for everyone.
A small family party can be a perfect way to celebrate the milestone of your baby turning one. There is a lot to say for a small party actually such as lower cost for the party.
Celebrating your babies birthday with a small bunch of people can sometimes be a bit more personal as well, and if you are in luck, you may get some homemade cake as well. Another benefit of a smaller party is quality time with some of your guest; you actually have time to talk to some people. Smaller parties are less overwhelming for the baby as well.
The culture and country you live in will likely influence the kind of celebration you choose as well. I originally lived in Holland, where a party will be held at home with your family.
Here in Australia, it is common to have a pinata with your kids birthday party, a party activity game for the kids where the children receive lollies during the came, it was de highlight for may children visiting the party.
