    Re: On your birthday people feed you cake with their hands.

    Are the people being fed unable to feed themselves?

    Re: On your birthday people feed you cake with their hands.

    ​There is a missing comma from both sentences.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: On your birthday people feed you cake with their hands.

    It does sound culture-specific, so it may be worth mentioning where this happens. I have lived in several countries and no one has ever done this to me, and I didn't know people did it.

    That's a wedding - not a birthday.

    Re: On your birthday people feed you cake with their hands.

    I have seen this at weddings, but not at birthdays. At weddings, it is something between the bride and groom.
