Hello, and welcome to Wednesday.

It’s Jessica May’s birthday, which means today’s blogging will be rather random, and may involve epiphanies regarding cake.

The various customs with which people today celebrate their birthdays have a long history. Their origins lie in the realm of magic and religion. The customs of offering congratulations, presenting gifts and celebrating – complete with lighted candles – in ancient times were meant to protect the birthday celebrant from the demons and to ensure his security for the coming year. . . . Down to the fourth century Christianity rejected the birthday celebration as a pagan custom.
