December 15, 2016 – Pope Francis Rejects Early 80th Birthday Wish, Says Early Wishes Bring Bad Luck

The Pope yesterday quipped people that Catholic faithfuls should not send him early birthday wishes because in his native country of Argentina, early birthday wishes bring bad luck to people.

Pope Francis turns 80 on Saturday for the occasion; the Vatican has opened seven email accounts that can receive birthday messages in Latin, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, English, French, German and Polish.

“But let me tell you something that will make you laugh: In my country early birthday wishes bring bad luck,’’ the pontiff said during his weekly audience.

Meeting the faithful in the Vatican’s Paul VI’s hall, Francis was presented with a cake from a woman.

It had two lit candles, one in the shape of an “8” and another in the shape of a “0” the pope blew them out.
