Happy Birthday, KelpoLova !

This week I am celebrating my beloved blog KelpoLova's birthday, which was in 12 March 2011. I was late, so I claimed this month as KelpoLova's first birthday, also the month when New Kelpo was born. As well as celebrating KelpoLova's birthday, I'm also going to share when the tradition 'birthday' started, or who invented 'birthday' !

According to me, birthday started as soon as the system of Calendar was invented. Historians assumed that birthday celebration started in Ancient Egypt, about 1000-3000 BC. In that time, only the Pharaohs, or the kings could celebrate birthday. Centuries later, it is believed that evil spirits would be more dangerous at people's birthday, that is why people celebrate birthday by parties, to scare away the evil spirit.
