Birthday cakes. Lighted candles. Singing "Happy
Birthday." Receiving gifts. In almost every culture and nation
on earth, virtually nothing is as universally celebrated as birthdays.
But is birthday-keeping biblical? Does God agree with this practice?
As sure as death and taxes, all human beings are
born on a particular day. Everyone has a birth date. Since God wants
people to celebrate life abundantly (John 10:10), could this include
celebrating birthdays? Is birthday-keeping innocent funor does
God hate it? Does it even matter?
