Here are the birthday song lyrics as we know them these days:
So there you have it, who would have thought that a song intended as a simple greeting would turn into a worldwide phenomenon.
Set up a circle of numbers on the ground and have everyone stand on a number. Begin playing festive music and have everyone walk from number to number. Draw a number from a hat and then stop the music. Whoever is standing on that number when the music stops is the winner! I have played this game at many school carnivals where the prize is a cake. But, you can give away something different.
When selecting a game, be sure to consult your kid. If they find it fun and approve it then take things to the nest level. If your kid wont like the game, it is certain that he not enjoy it much.
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?
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.
