Travelers have friends in every corner of the world. And whether they talk every week or just a couple of times a year (at New Year, for example), the best way to keep the connection alive is to know how to wish your international friends a happy birthday in their own language. Receiving a card, or a simple text, with a birthday note in your native tongue from a far-flung friend makes the occasion special — it’s an act of kindness that won’t be soon forgotten.
The list below will teach you how to say “Happy birthday” in different languages – 40 of them, actually! So bookmark it, and when the occasion comes up to send your good wishes to your friend who lives far away, you’ll have everything you need to make them feel appreciated.
