In China, a bowl of extra-long noodles is served to the birthday person. The long length of the noodles indicates having a long life and good luck. So, people try to keep them long when they are cooking them! In Australia, a colorful dessert called “fairy bread” is served, particularly at children’s birthday parties. A slice of bread, some butter, and sprinkles are used to make fairy bread. You will also hear many songs and chants in Mexico that celebrate the birthday person. People also chant when the cake is being cut. Swinging at pinatas is also a fun birthday activity in Mexico.
