10 Baffling Birthday Traditions From Around The World

Fairy Bread

It’s not uncommon for gifts and treats to be given to a person when it is their birthday, with some popular choices including favorite meals and cakes. In New Zealand though, they take a different route and offer children and adults the chance to eat fairy bread in celebration. The bread is simply toast with sprinkles spread across the surface, though it is considered a delicacy in the country.

Crown of Flowers

Children are expected to wear specially made crowns on their birthday, which are usually constructed using flowers. They are then placed on a chair and lifted into the air the same number of times as their birthday as a good luck measure and a ceremony of joy.
