So there you have it, who would have thought that a song intended as a simple greeting would turn into a worldwide phenomenon.
And lastly, remember that all parties are fun and giving out gifts or party favors is a good idea. Specially if your guests are below 5 years.
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.
