As the title suggest this post includes my collection of make a wish deals. Ever wondered how and why did the saying of ‘make a wish’ got associated with some objects around us? If you think this is the place for your answer, well I am sure I can’t help you overcome these delusions. I personally love looking around for these small treasures that give a moment of thrill to people wishing and hoping their dreams may come true by doing gestures like – throwing coins in water bodies, tying knots, or as simple as blowing off candles from cakes.
The small pleasures of both child and adulthood!
