Kids Banned from Birthday Tradition


http://shine.yahoo.com/parenting/aus...nlwYWdl;_ylv=3

Celebrating birthdays at school just got a little less fun for kids in Australia. New guidelines issued Tuesday by the country's National Health and Medical Research Council say that children can no longer blow out the candles on cakes at school because doing so spreads too many germs.

That's totally ridiculous. Don't you want kids to be exposed to germs early on to help build up their immune system as adults?

This is an insane level of government micromanaging and I'm pretty sure it's one of those laws that will NEVER actually be enforced, so it's pointless for it to even exist in the exist in the first place.
