A Heartfelt Greeting


The more candles, the bigger the wish.
Birthday, as the term implies, is the day or anniversary of the particular day on which a person was born. Though by no means universal, birthdays are celebrated in numerous cultures, often with a party or, in some instances, a rite of passage.
A person's birthday is usually recorded according to the time zone of the place of birth. Those who live in different time zones from their birth often exclusively celebrate their birthdays at the local time zone. In addition, the intervention of Daylight Saving Time can result in a case where a baby born second being recorded as having been born up to an hour before their predecessor.
History of Birthday
It is quite interesting to study the history of Birthday celebrations. Earliest history of birthday can be traced before the rise of Christianity where celebrations began to ward off evil spirits!! If this surprises you, read on for more interesting facts and gradual progress of birthday celebrations in history.
Birthday History
History of Birthday observance can be traced back before the rise of Christianity. In pagan culture it was believed evil spirits visited people on their birthdays. To protect the person having birthday from the evil effect, people used to surround him and make merry. A lot of noise used to be created in such parties to scare away the evil spirits. In those times there was no tradition of bringing gifts and guests attending the birthday party would bring good wishes for the birthday person. However, if a guest did bring gifts it was considered to be a good sign for the person of honor. Later, flowers became quite popular as a Birthday gift.
Birthdays in Present Times
Over the years birthday celebrations became quite popular all over the world and today they are globally celebrated by people irrespective of their caste and social status. Though the method of birthday celebrations is similar in number of countries some countries follow unique way of celebrations based on their cultural milieu, religious tradition and spiritual beliefs. Everywhere birthdays are a special day of people and birthday parties are organized to enjoy the day by having fun with loved ones. Those who are unable to wish personally, send their good wishes by way of Birthday Cards following the tradition started in England about a hundred years ago.

 To My Imaginary Friend

It's your birthday 
I can't be there
But I'll send you a special birthday wish and a little prayer
Have a happy birthday
I hope that all of your birthday wishes come true
May you have a great time today and find happiness in everything you do.
Happy Birthday form the heart
Cause that's where all great wishes start 

Eat a little
Eat a lot
Eat untill you have to stop!
You're birthday is here
You're getting old
But you're still my dear!


Balloons for you,
so you will always feel you're like a child.
May you keep those balloons*smile*

 No one can hold a candle to you.

God gave a gift to the world when you were born;
a person who loves and cares, 
who sees a person's need and fills it, 
who encourages and lifts people up, 
who spends energy on others rather than himself, 
who touches each life he enters and makes a difference in the world. 

May the love you have shown to others return to you multiplied. 

I am so lucky to have you as a friend. You have always helped me. Your thoughts and ideas are great! It really shows how brilliant you are, how smooth you handle tough situations, how calm you are in shaky world, how firm you are in making decisions(ehem, not to mention) and how you understand things even in doubt. Please keep it up! Continue to be a blessing and always do things right! I wish you all the best. 
May your troubles be less and your blessings be more and nothing but hapiness come through your door.

Today's your special day
You just got a cupcake
 So blow the flame away

So many wishes
So many smiles
Too many memories
Too few words
With one big Birthday

Happy Birthday! 
Wishing you your happiest birthday yet
