What is the History of Birthdays?

Have you ever considered why we bother to celebrate birthdays at all? When you think about it, they’re just a chance for your friends and family to get together and congratulate you for making it through another year. But, for some reason, it’s evolved into much more.

Although research on the precise origins of birthdays and birthday cakes is ambiguous, there is enough agreement to build a rough timeline. Perhaps one day, a Birthdayologist will emerge to clear the air. Still, in the meantime, we’ve assembled a list of historians’ best guesses on the evolution of birthday celebrations and the delectable cakes that frequently accompany them.

In ancient Egypt, when pharaohs were anointed, they were said to have become gods. Their coronation date became even more important than their birth date as a result of this supernatural promotion. Thus, the Bible’s description of a Pharaoh’s birthday has been cited as the earliest documented mention of a birthday celebration (around 3,000 B.C.E.)

As a sort of tribute to Artemis, the Greeks presented her with moon-shaped cakes. Greeks lit candles and placed them on cakes for a luminous effect to mimic the moon’s radiance and perceived beauty. The Greeks most likely borrowed the idea of birthday celebrations from the Egyptians because the Greeks were honoring their gods and goddesses in the same way that the Egyptians honored their pharaohs as “gods.”

According to popular belief, the Romans were the first culture to commemorate non-religious people’s birthdays. Romans celebrated birthdays for friends and family, while state holidays were established to celebrate the birthdays of more prominent persons. For example, a special cake comprised of wheat flour, olive oil, honey, and grated cheese would be served to those celebrating their 50th birthday. Despite all of this, female birthdays were not honored until the 12th century.

For the first few hundred years of its existence, the Christian Church considered birthday celebrations flawed due to its conviction that humans are born with “original sin” and that early birthdays were associated with “pagan” gods. However, Christians began to modify their ideas about the fourth century and commemorate Jesus’ birthday as the Christmas holiday. This new festival was allowed into the church to attract individuals who were already celebrating Saturnalia, the Roman feast.
