So there you have it, who would have thought that a song intended as a simple greeting would turn into a worldwide phenomenon.
An amusement park facility makes it all so easy, providing the location, doing all the setup, entertaining and clean up. Many amusement parks even have package deals for kids birthday parties. All you have to do is show up and have fun. Next time you are looking for cool birthday party places, consider an amusement park.
The happy birthday song story, a lot more to it than you may have thought.
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.
When selecting a locale, it is important to think about what activities and entertainment will be in store for the kids who attend the party. For kids birthday parties, find a location that has plenty to do so everyone will have fun and be kept busy throughout the day. One of the best suited venues, which offers something for everyone, is an amusement park setting. For kids birthday parties, this type of facility has it all for the 8 to 18 year old age group.
Here are the birthday song lyrics as we know them these days:
