Birthday greeting messages can be written on a handmade card, typed in an electronic message or written on a pre-printed card to express congratulations or well wishes for the year to come. Birthday greeting messages may also include inspirational quotes or thanks for friendship or devotion from the individual.
Birthday greeting messages may offer well wishes for the individual, such as "Birthdays are a new start, a fresh beginning, and a time to pursue new endeavors with new goals" or "My birthday wish for you is that you continue to love life and never stop dreaming."
Some birthday greeting messages may offer a humorous touch, such as "Count the age, not the wrinkles you have" or "Let there be peace on Earth and let it begin right after your birthday party." Greetings may also focus on the age of the recipient, such as "The advantage of old age is that you get to spread your love to many others."
Birthday greeting messages can also reflect on friendships such as "On your birthday, I’d like to take some time to think about all of the wonderful times we’ve shared together" or "My best friend deserves the best birthday in the world and my goal is to give it to you."
