I was sitting quietly in the living room of my house at ten at night, when suddenly my water broke. It was a Friday like this, a great day that made for a busy weekend for the whole family. I arrived at the maternity clinic at twelve at night and at twenty to seven in the morning my first baby was born. This weekend we celebrate his birthday. In keeping with tradition, we will sing to you Happy Birthday, family and friends, all in chorus, the most popular song in the world, according to the Guinness Book of Records, which has been translated into dozens of languages ​​and is sung daily by millions of people.

And it is that when I think of some memorable version, that of Marilyn Monroe always comes to mind, sung on May 19, 1962, 78 days before his death, to the American president John F. Kennedy, in a massive celebration in the Madison Square Garden.

The Most popular song in the world was created in 1893 and hides a tough battle for copyright, and no wonder, since some estimates speak of two million dollars a year in copyright for the song. As if that were not enough, nowadays, it is also used in countless electronic devices such as mobile phones or greeting cards. And while we sing the song, my son will blow out the candles on his cake, also fulfilling the most shared tradition around the world. In ancient times, congratulating, giving gifts and having a party with lit candles was a custom, which served to protect the guardian demons of the people and was considered a form of gratitude to ensure safety during the coming year.

In ancient Egypt, the pharaohs ordered to close shops and gave huge parties to celebrate their birthdays, while , who was present on the day of their birth and who cared for them all their lives. The custom of tarts with lighted candles also began with the Greeks, who placed round cakes made with honey adorned with lighted candles on the altars of the Temple of Artemis. Currently, the popular belief is that birthday candles can grant wishes, bring good luck, and pay tribute to the person celebrating their birthday. For this reason, a few seconds before blowing out the candles, we all make a wish and then blow hard so that they all go out in the hope that this will fulfill our wish. Long live, may you enjoy it and may you fulfill many more!
