California Dad, Mindful of Hygiene, 'Blows' Birthday Candles Out With Hands

A man celebrating his birthday in California fiercely waved his hands over a cake to “blow” out the candles and lessen the spread of germs so his family could enjoy the treat as well.

Kaylee shared this video of her dad, Chad, celebrating his birthday “in pandemic times” brought on by the coronavirus. Kaylee said her dad cried after her family surprised him with cake during the celebration in Eureka, California, on April 27.

This footage shows Chad flapping his hands over the burning candles to extinguish the flames, rather than blow them out with his breath. Credit: @mangomelon789 via Storyful
