May your birthday soirée be fulfilled by the magic of the beehive.
The earliest Greek records refer to honeybees as sacred beings in relation to goddess and mother cultures. Once a month, the birth of Artemis, goddess of the moon, was celebrated with the preparation of round cakes. Lit bees-waxed candles were positioned to form a glowing moon atop each cake; their smoke, it was believed, would carry wishes and prayers to the sky-dwelling gods.
