The Birthday Ring is a German birthday tradition. It is a symbolic way to celebrate the anniversary of a child's birth and show reverence for each year of their life thus far. A Birthday Ring consists of a wooden circle with holes representing each year of life. Traditionally, on your child's first birthday, you place one candle on the ring and fill the rest of the holes with figures. On each consecutive birthday, you replace one figure with a candle.
"Very special birthday celebration: If you follow a more waldorf tradition, you tell the birthday story and light each candle as you go through that year. It really is so magical for children to hear the story of their coming into world. The birthday spiral can be set up for birthday morning on the birthday table." - Grimm's Classical Birthday Decorations offers a wide range of different Birthday Rings and Ornaments.
