Here are the birthday song lyrics as we know them these days:
Happy Birthday to you.
The Happy Birthday Song story starts in Kentucky with 2 sisters called Mildred J. Hill (born in 1859), and Patty Smith Hill (born in 1868). Another sister called Jessica also played a role, but more on that later. Patty was a nursery school teacher (and eventually principle) who helped found the Institute of Child Welfare Research and Columbia in 1924, and also created the Patty Hill Blocks used in schools nationwide. Mildred, like her sister, also started out as a kindergarten and Sunday school teacher but she eventually became a concert pianist and composer, she took a very scholarly approach to music and specialised in the field of Negro spirituals.
Amusement parks offer plenty to do regardless of the time of year or weather conditions, which is a very nice perk. When planning kids birthday parties, you can not always be assured in advance what the weather conditions will be like that day. Nobody wants to get rained out if they are planning an outdoor party.
Happy Birthday to you,
It is one of the most commonly used phrases in the English language, sung around the world on a daily basis, but what do birthdays really mean to us?
