People celebrate lots of events every year. We may celebrate religious holidays, or we may celebrate anniversaries that mark the big events in our nation is history, like the Fourth of July, or in human history, but what significance do our own birthdays have? Most of us dont change the world. Most of us do not lead noteworthy lives. We live our lives in quiet anonymity, and the world would keep on turning even if we did never been born.
Here are the birthday song lyrics as we know them these days:
I have never gone to bed on my birthday night exhausted, but in past years, I have gone to my bed disappointed. I am sure now you can understand why. It is not like my expectations of my birthday are that high, right? I mean, do not fairy godmothers come to you and make your fantasies come true? I know many people are wondering, like me, where their fairy godmother is... especially on a day when it is your special day. I am still waiting for her to arrive... and when she does, my most excellent dreams will be my fabulous reality. This year seems like a good year. Then again, does that mean she will only come once in a lifetime or can she come once a year? After all, it is my birthday, Im allowed to be a little selfish.
In 1893 Mildred was working at the Louisville Experimental Kindergarten School where her sister was also working as Principle. Mildred came up with the melody we all now associate with the happy birthday song, and sister Patty added the lyrics and so was born the song Good Morning to All, a simple and catchy song for teachers to use to welcome their students into the class room each day. It went like this:
Good morning to you,
All Season, All Weather Fun
