Why use birthday candles?

Using candles on a birthday cake is a tradition that dates back to ancient times. The Greeks celebrated birthdays by offering round cakes to Artemis, goddess of the moon, with candles lit to imitate the glow of the moon.

Over time, the use of candles has become more modern and widespread in many cultures around the world. They add a special and festive touch to the birthday celebration and allow you to count down the years of the person being celebrated.

The ritual around the birthday candle also creates a warm atmosphere, we all stop for a moment, lights off, with only the candles lit and the face of the birthday person illuminated!
