by Diane Wyzga | February 4, 2022 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you Jeff Ikler listening in New York, New York!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is a Bonus 60 Seconds for anyone celebrating a birthday today.
Light the candles on the birthday cake. Make a wish. Blow out the candles!
Where did this tradition begin? Maybe it’s true or maybe it isn’t, but as the story goes the ancient Greeks in the time of Zeus brought round-shaped cakes adorned with lit candles when they visited the temple of Artemis, the goddess of the hunt and the moon. The Romans called her Diana. As you can imagine, the lit candles made the round cakes glow like the moon. Others believe that the smoke from the candles carries the wishes and prayers heavenward where they will be granted – in time – although not always in the form they were expected.
When it’s your birthday light the candles, make a wish and believe it will come true for you. Birthday wishes are like that! Guaranteed!
