Have you ever wondered where the custom of celebrating birthdays comes from? Basically, there are many traditions that can be observed in different cultures when celebrating birthdays. The origin of this holiday is strongly linked to magic and religion.

The anniversary celebration is practically implanted in all cultures. This event gives rise to festivities and rites very diverse. The idea of ​​annual commemoration was probably formed in the prehistoric world with the appearance of two important phenomena. The first is the formation of a mystical consciousness that involves invisible forces that are outside the world of humans. The second is the belief that the cosmic system is repetitive through the lunar cycle. These two phenomena give rise to the idea of ​​a calendar and, with it, the possibility of celebrating specific dates.
