Why people put and blow the candles on cakes?


We blow out candles on birthday cakes since we were small. But have you ever wondered why we do that?

Birthday cakes tradition started in Ancient Romans. Some believe that candles on cake began in Ancient Greece where the Greeks would make a round cake to honour Artemis and the lit candles represent the glow of the moon. They believe the smoke will carry their prayers to the gods in the heavens. Thus, they blow out the candles.

But there is another saying that the candles on cake originate from Germany to represent the light of life, which is why the candles always match your age.

So, never forget to make your wish before blowing out your candles!
