Funny birthday sayings

Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear (insert name of loved one here), happy birthday to you!

Everyone has a birthday, which means every single person you know should be celebrated some time throughout the year. OK, that may be a bit excessive. But still, there are plenty of people worth topping a cake with candles for!

Birthdays can be tricky, because, as we said, everyone has one! Add a clever message to make your Lovepop card feel even more personal and unique. Here are 56 LOL-worthy ways to let the people in your life know you remembered (and celebrated) their day of birth with a smile!

  • Like you giving message suggestions. That’s difficult to always know what to say. How about get well cards?
