    Only the one shaped like numbers, cause if I used 39 individual candles the first candles would be melted by the time the happy Bday song was sang.

    History of the Birthday Candle: Another symbol of birthday celebrations is the birthday candles. The Greek people who took their cakes to Artemis placed candles on the cakes because it made the cakes look as if it was glowing like the full moon. The Germans known as excellent candle makers began making small candles for their cakes. Some German family's would one large candle symbolizing the "light of life. The candle is marked with lines and numbers (usually 12) that would be burned every year. Some people believe the candle were placed on cakes for religious reasons. Others believe that the smoke from the candles would take their wishes up to the heavens.

    I used to but if I put candles on a cake for each year I am nowadays I would need a gigantic cake and I would be running a grave risk of catching my home on fire.

    Methusalah was over 900 when he died. I think I can beat that, at least I feel that I Can (LoL).
