Birthdays are the time to count your blessings, not the years.. Yes, we should celebrate every day of life, but birthdays do have that extra edge, they are extra special.

Origin of Celebrating Birthdays

The first instance in history that mentions a birthday celebration can be found in “Genesis”, the first book of the Bible. It mentions the first Pharaoh of Egypt, Ra the Sun God, celebrating his birth with a feast with his servants. In fact the event had the underlying autocratic emotion that the celebration was to felicitate the Pharaoh because he graced the lives of the people by being born.

Here are the reasons in a chronological order as to how birthdays came to be celebrated.

  • In Egypt the Pharaohs on being coroneted were considered to have transformed into Gods. Thus it was the day of the birth of a God, and the occasion was celebrated with great pomp and show.

  • The Greeks adopted the idea of birthday celebrations from the Egyptians and on the occasion of birthdays, they celebrated their Gods and Goddesses.

  • The Romans were the first to begin the celebration of birthdays of the common man. However, only men celebrated their birthdays, and it was the 12th C before the women joined in.

  • For the Christian celebration of birthdays was a pagan act till around the 4th C. They changed their mind to celebrate the birthday of Jesus Christ as Christmas.

  • The Romans were the first to begin the celebration of birthdays of the common man. However, only men celebrated their birthdays, and it was the 12th C before the women joined in.

  • For the Christian celebration of birthdays was a pagan act till around the 4th C. They changed their mind to celebrate the birthday of Jesus Christ as Christmas.

  • Birthdays celebrations were out of reach of the common man till the Industrial Revolution as the cakes, an integral part of birthday celebrations, were beyond their reach. But the revolution changed the scenario with mass production and affordable cakes.

  • The birthday song was conceived in 1924 in a songbook by Robert Coleman.


No matter what the origin, there is no doubt about the fact that birthdays are perfect to connect and re-connect with the people in one’s life. A time to bond, a time to celebrate life.
