      The first known birthday celebrations began among the Egyptians with
      parades, circuses, and gladiatorial events - all complete with feasts
      that sometimes lasted for days. Romans celebrated the birthdays of
      their gods with parades and chariot races. Mortals were not
      encouraged to celebrate their birthdays in Rome. Germany introduced
      the tradition of birthday cakes about 200 years ago. The cake itself
      was filled with gifts that predicted the recipient's life in the
      upcoming year. For example, if the slice of cake contained a ring, it
      symbolized impending marriage. A coin guaranteed riches throughout
      the next year. If the cake fell while baking, it ensured impending
      doom to the one celebrating a birthday. Today, various countries
      celebrate birthdays in unique ways.
      In the United States, the traditional birthday ritual calls for
      giving gifts to the one celebrating his special day. Selecting
      the "right" gift depends on the individual, his interests, and how
      well you know him. Instead of purchasing the "same old" thing, add a
      unique twist to your birthday gift selections this year and watch out
      for the positive feedback! Below are several ideas that you may wish
      to give thought to as you plan your next birthday gift list for every
      child, teen, or adult in your life....
