A Hancock family continued a Christmas tradition this year by placing a display featuring a three-tiered birthday cake that says "Happy Birthday Jesus" in lights. The display can be seen in the yard of Shirley and Lewis Mills, on a hill across from the Park-N-Dine Restaurant. Shirley Mills and her brother, Melvin Iden, repainted and repaired the birthday cake, which has drawn compliments over the years from people who stopped to look at the display. The Millses say they hope people will look at the cake and remember the true meaning of what Christmas stands for, which is the birth of Jesus.

John Wentz of Maugansville went with his wife into Hagerstown Country Market April 8 to pick up a birthday cake for his 50th birthday. A quick decision led to him receiving a new Volkswagon Beetle. While he was in the store, he saw that there was a two-state promotion at 13 Country Market food stores in which a Volkswagon Beetle 2000 valued at about $18,350 was being given away. While he never had an urge to own a Beetle, he decided to put his name into the drawing anyway, he said.

The biggest cake Martin's grocery store sells, too many balloons to count and friends and family members clapping, cheering and smiling from ear to ear. That's what Raymond Little experienced when he entered the Loyalton of Hagerstown living room Sept. 18 for his 102nd birthday party. It was easy to tell from looking around the room that Little has led a busy life, as people from all walks of his life were on hand to celebrate the milestone. The Wendy's employee who used to serve him a hot bowl of chili every Saturday was among the party attendees, along with people from his church, his sons, other family members and his neighbors at Loyalton.

My husband celebrated his birthday on Wednesday. We marked the occasion by lighting candles, eating cake and attending our kids' practices, games and lessons. Thankfully, this week was not completely of the divide-and-conquer variety where he's in one place with one teen and I'm in another with the other one. At least we did some of this week's events together. During halftime of one game, my husband and I balanced a tray of food between us, sharing the space for our burgers and fries.

I'm pretty low key, a characteristic that translates into how I celebrate my birthday. My daughter loves birthdays. Ever since her birthday more than six months ago, she has been singing "Happy Birthday" to herself, and anyone else who has a birthday. Well no, actually she sings and makes pretend cakes for anyone she knows. She also loves to talk about birthday parties or other celebrations. My family and I did tell her my birthday was coming up last week. Then, on the morning of my special day, I reminded her that it was my birthday.
