The Wishes Visa Gift Card celebrates a relatively new variation on an old theme. Birthday cakes with candles go back to ancient Greek civilization, when they paid tribute to the moon goddess, Artemis. More recently, superstition prompts us to make a wish on the candles and blow them all out. If we do it in one breath, our wish will be granted. No need to believe in the power of wishing, though. The power of a Wishes Visa Gift Card will help your birthday friends make their own wishes come true.
