Your Birthday !!

Your birthday is a very special day. Only eighteen million other people share it (unless you were born on February 29, in which case you really are special since only 4.5 million people have your birthday).
The custom of lighting candles originated with people believing that the gods lived in the sky and by lighting candles and torches they were sending a signal or prayer to the gods so they they could be answered. When you blow out the candles and make a wish this is another way of sending a signal and a message.
happy birthday
The volume of blood in your body is approximately 5 litres. The heart pumps about 280 litres of blood around your body every hour – that is 2,688,000 litres per year!
The Earth is zooming around the sun at around 66,780 miles per hour! Since your last birthday the Earth has completed one journey around the sun travelling about 584,337,600 miles.
The earliest birthday parties in history were held because it was feared that evil spirits were attracted to people on their birthdays.
