HAPPY BIRTHDAY

“Happy Birthday to You; Happy Birthday to you; Happy Birthday dear......; Happy Birthday to You.”

How many times have you sung this song either at a birthday party, school, work, or a social gathering? We always feel happy to have this song sung to us because it signifies we have marked another birthday.

I know this song has been around for many years as I have had it sung to me for ...... (not telling) years. I was wondering, as I wonder about many things, where did the song, “Happy Birthday” originate?
