Blowing out birthday candles
We’ve all been there, gathered around a delicious cake decorated with as many candles as the age of the person celebrating their birthday, waiting for the birthday boy or girl to take a deep breath and make a wish as they blow out their candles.
However, if you stop and think about it for a moment, with the coronavirus being spread by droplets, do you really want to tuck into a cake that someone has just blown all over? Sadly, even singing happy birthday has the potential to spread the virus. In the future it’s probably best to just send them a card.
