BIRTHDAY SONG Excerpt from Proof of Existence by @JLenniDorner
Excerpt from Proof of Existence by @JLenniDorner

When did people start blowing out candles on birthday cakes? No one knows for sure, but it's plausible that it started in ancient times. ๐ŸŽ‚

The birthday song, "Happy Birthday to You" written by Mildred and Patty Hill, is in the public domain in the United States and the European Union. Warner Chappell Music claimed copyright on the song until 2015 when the copyright claim was declared invalid. 

Nevertheless, I took the opportunity to put a different birthday song in the book. 

QUESTION — Do you, or someone you know, care to take a crack at putting this to music with me? It's just lyrics like this.

  1. I have added book one of your Series to my TBR list.
    You had asked about my book 1 a while back and I'm sorry for the late response. Amazon was likely confused because I took it down for a bit. A revised edition is available now for pre-order:

    Good luck with the rest of A-to-Z. We are creeping our way to the end.

  2. I don't like the tradition of blowing out candles. I mean, it's like they are spraying the cake with their spittle. Especially little kids.

    Cool challenge about putting the lyrics to music. Hope you find someone to do it and put it up for us to hear.


  3. I think Covid showed us we don't really need to blow out the candle on the birthday cake.
