There are my legends as to how the tradition of blowing out birthday candles originated. It is often claimed that the tradition of placing candles on birthday cakes could be attributed to early Greeks. Others claim it started with the Germans or Swiss. Whatever the origin, blowing out birthday candles has created many funny situations through the years, especially with the kids!
Sometimes kids haven’t learned to blow our air yet and sometimes parents have to step in and save the child from eating the lit candles! No matter what, the tradition of blowing out the candles has long been a great memory for kids and parents alike.
