Emma Elias, "Birthday Traditions"

Celebrating birthdays is something we all participate in, but at college it can be difficult to make it a special occasion. With this in mind, for the past two semesters I have been baking my friends a birthday cake of their choosing and celebrating their birthdays with them and their friends. For my Capstone, I created a blog explaining the historical and cultural significance of our current birthday traditions, why these traditions are important, and documented each of the birthday cakes I made and who they were for. By documenting these occasions, I hope to remind you of why it is important to show appreciation and care for your loved ones, especially on happy occasions.
