It's your birthday today. Congratulations! / It's your birthday today. Happy Birthday !, Many Happy Returns ! Como muito cedo nos ensinam que 'congratulations' significa 'parabéns', automaticamente começamos a usar esta palavra para cumprimentar as pessoas pelo aniversário. Entretanto, 'congratulations' deve ser usado para parabenizar uma pessoa por alguma conquista, uma promoção, um prêmio, etc.
The melody of "Happy Birthday to You" comes from the song "Good Morning to All", which was written and composed by American siblings Patty Hill and Mildred J. Hill in 1893. Patty was a kindergarten principal in Louisville, Kentucky, developing various teaching methods at what is now the Little Loomhouse; Mildred was a pianist and composer., p. 7 The sisters created "Good Morning to All" as a song that would be easy to be sung by young children., p. 14
