Birthdays are often considered to be the happy day of individuals. However, in Denmark, the 25th birthday sometimes makes many people feel scared. Because if you still remain single to this day, a "total attack" from relatives is inevitable. Photo: Cosmopolitian.

The attack will take place in front of "under the public's eyes". The main character will be tied to a tree, lamppost, or chair in the middle of the road. The single person is blindfolded to increase the drama as well as the safety. Then, in turn, friends and family will come to throw cinnamon powder at the tied person. They will throw more eggs and pour water to make sure the dough will stick on the still-single 25-year-old person. Photo: Funnyjunk.

Dough throwing will not end quickly. Usually, they will let the single person go to the bathroom to wash and then re-tie and throw again. This "torture" only ends when the cinnamon powder is gone. After that, all will go to the bar and get drunk to celebrate birthday. Photo: Funnyjunk.

The custom originated in the 16th century. At that time, the merchants trading spice and pepper had to move so much that it was almost impossible to find a lover. Most of them get married very late or suffer a lifetime of unmarried. Therefore, if you are over 39 years old that still unmarried, you will be labeled "pepper man". The tradition of throwing cinnamon powder comes from here. Photo: Kathrine_rendboe, Aroonlena.

According to Culture Trip, being single at the age of 25 (or older) is perfectly normal. The average age of marriage in Denmark for men is 35 and women are 32. Denmark is also always in the top free countries in the world. Simply throwing cinnamon powder at the bachelor mainly gave Danes more reason to party. Photo: Pinterest.

Those who are thrown also enjoy this tradition. On social networks, with some hashtags like #dannishtradition or #cinnamonattack ... you can find many interesting pictures of this tradition. "Happy 25th birthday to my single. Stinking, sticky but I find it more interesting than having a lover," Helen Maria shared feelings after being "attacked".
