Each year we have our family Christmastime dinner, and for dessert, we always serve a birthday cake, complete with candles. Of course everyone sings, "Happy Birthday."
It all began with the first grandchild. I wanted to think of a way to teach about the birth of Christ. Once a child has experienced their own first birthday, they understand a birthday cake, so when our first grandchild reached that age, I served a "Happy Birthday, Jesus." It quickly became a family tradition.
When the grandchildren became teenagers, I thought about eliminating it; but they insisted that we continue. I was happy to learn that as big as they were, it was still important to them, and so we continued. Here's our cake for this year. I had Blue candles and Blue flowers and Blue trim on it. The cake is a four-layer, yellow cake from Publix, and with fudge frosting, and this year--pineapple filling. It sure was good.
The Jim Shore caroler dog (on the right of the cake) is singing, "Bark, the Herald Angels Sing."
