Who Thought of Topping a Birthday Cake With Fire?

Was it an arsonist that came up with the idea of putting candles on a birthday cake? 

One for each year.

No wonder there are so many fire-bugs and fire-starters out there.  Once every year kids around the world are being subjected to this ancient pagan ritual.  What does it mean?

If the birthday boy/girl blows them out all at once in a single breath he'll/she'll have good luck.  

Some people make a wish before blowing them out, which should come true if, they don't tell anyone what the wish was within the next year. Try holding that secret for a year.

In my case my next birthday cake could turn into a mini-disaster. There won't be enough room for another candle stick.

I could start a fire.

A big one.
