Birthday Cake for Jesus

As Christmas approached when I was 3 years old, it was explained to me that the purpose of the holiday was to celebrate Jesus’ birthday.  I insisted that He get a birthday cake like everyone else I knew.  So we started having birthday parties for Jesus, birthday cake included,  every Christmas Eve and the tradition remained for many many years.  Now that I have my own kids it’s a fun way to help them relate to the reason we celebrate Christmas.   And everyone loves birthday cake. 🙂

Happy birthday, Jesus!

And Merry Christmas everyone!
