I would like to wish my beautiful fiancรฉ a Happy Birthday, my wife to-be. A woman that means everything to me.

Interesting Fact: The origins of “Happy Birthday to You” date back to at least the mid-19th century, when two sisters, Patty and Mildred J. Hill, introduced the song “Good Morning to All” to Patty’s kindergarten class in Kentucky.[6] Years later, in 1893, they published the tune in their songbook Song Stories for the Kindergarten. Kembrew McLeod stated that the Hill sisters likely copied the tune and lyrical idea from other popular and similar nineteenth-century songs that predated theirs, including Horace Waters’ “Happy Greetings to All”, “Good Night to You All” also from 1858, “A Happy New Year to All” from 1875, and “A Happy Greeting to All”, published 1885. However, Brauneis disputes this, noting that these earlier songs had quite different melodies. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Happy_Birthday_to_You )

  1. Do people ever come up to her and sing, “Joey, I’m not angry anymore”? That would be my first thought, even before the birthday song. Perhaps she is too young to know that one.
