>Did you know……………..

No one really knows why we have candles on birthday cakes? It is a fact lost in history, but some think it is because the ancient Greeks use to make round cakes in honor of the full moon and take use them in worship of their goddess Artemis. She was the goddess of the moon. It is said the Greeks placed candles around the cake to resemble a glowing full moon.

Do you suppose they sang a song when they did this?
