#MidnightMadness – 3/12/2017

Who started the tradition of having cake on birthdays?  And what about the candles, do they hold special significance?  Were they originally placed there to ward off evil spirits?  Or have they simply always been there to represent the age of a person and give them the opportunity to make a wish.  ~M
