Birthdays are great for a number of reasons, like birthday parties, getting to eat birthday cake, getting free stuff from your favorite stores, and receiving heartfelt birthday messages.
These days, it’s not unusual for people to say ‘Happy Birthday’ to you in sweet and/or funny Facebook posts and even in Instagram stories and comments.
When people take time out of their day to wish you a happy birthday, the right thing to do is say thank you and show your appreciation for these messages.
