Ah, birthdays! This day may not be globally celebrated together, and businesses don’t close down to allow for a whole-day celebration, but it is just as special as any holiday—for at least one person, that is.
The Joy of Birthdays
Christmases and Hanukkahs are lively and fun to celebrate, but so are birthdays. What makes birthdays just as important as them is that they mark the beginning of someone’s life—somewhere out there, a person is looking back on the life they lived and the future they’ll face.
Everybody deserves to celebrate themselves, and birthdays offer the perfect opportunity to do just that! On birthdays, you’re allowed to be selfish, to think of yourself and to celebrate yourself. As long as you’re with the right people, a birthday can be more memorable and worthwhile than any grand holiday celebration!
Being a birthday celebrant is fun indeed, but what’s even more fun is honouring the birthday of someone you care about! However, although toasting to the nth year of a loved one’s life on Earth is fun, figuring out how to greet them with a card is not.
How Do You Say “Happy Birthday?”
Greeting someone on their birthday shouldn’t be a dilemma, but to some—like you—it is. Sure, you could go with the classic “Happy Birthday” and say it as sincere as you want, even hug them if they like hugs. But, giving a birthday card is different; you don’t have to try hard to find a card that says those two words.
To some, “Happy Birthday” may be a classic, but it can also sound pretty generic (no offence to Mildred and Patty Hill). If you’re going to give a birthday card to someone close to you, you may want to include a unique message on your card.
Depending on what kind of person the birthday celebrant is, we’ve compiled a list of birthday messages they may enjoy receiving on their special day:
Classic Birthday Cards
You can never go wrong with sincerity! If you want to keep it short and sweet, you can include a simple message instead, conveying warmth and personality. Here are some happy birthday messages you put in their card:
- Enjoy your special day.
- Thinking of you on your birthday and wishing you everything happy.
- [Name], hope you have a happy [nth]!
- Warmest wishes for a happy birthday.
- The world is lucky to have you in it.
Funny Birthday Cards
Your loved one probably receives a ton of lovely messages on their birthday, so why don’t you go with something different?

There’s nothing like a birthday to celebrate the life of someone you love! If you want to commemorate a person’s birthday, you can always give them a present, but it also helps to add a sincere birthday card with it.
