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 the day they celebrated their birthday was not the physical day they were born, but the day they were crowned to be a king.
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 we possible could celebrate birthdays, we had to
know when our day of birth was. And how could you possibly tell without a calendar? Ancient
people mainly kept track of time by sun and moon.
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, the start of the 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 how the calendar began.
Was there always a cake with birthday celebrations?
Generally speaking, cakes are most definitely a part of a birthday celebration, especially for children’s celebrations, the cake is a crucial element to make the party memorable.
It is believed the first birthday cake was made in Germany. The celebration for the kids would be called ‘Kinderfest’, ‘Kind’ what means Child, and ‘Fest’ what means party.
Firstly the cake would be more like a bread cake, later in time the cake is made sweeter. For 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 in 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 candles of the cake express sending your wish to the gods.
Children birthday parties in past and present.
Celebrating kids birthday parties have been acknowledged since the 12th century, back in the old days birthdays used to be for the noble people. The reason for the crown worn with birthday costumes may result from the history where only worthy people were celebrating their birthdays.
Matching mum and daughter clothing are trendy at the moment, and many attractive options are available.
Nowadays people tend to spend a lot of money on children birthdays, especially for babies first birthday. It is a milestone we want to make very special, 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 done is a unique ‘smash cake’ for baby to enjoy. A trend seen is a photo session done from baby enjoying the smash cake in a special cake smash outfit.

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.
Since I live in Australia, I have noticed the children parties are more colourful here. Living here for quite a few years now, I see I mix and match some cultural habits; I include some of my backgrounds aspects, I incorporate some Australian culture as well. I suppose that is how you roll when being an ex-pat, and nothing wrong with that.
