Do you remember the last time you sung “Happy Birthday” to someone? Most people are familiar with that traditional song. And, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, “happy birthday sister” is the most popular song in the English language. Wow! That is so cool!
Have you ever wondered about the origin of that song? Well history tells us that the melody comes from the song “Good Morning to All”. This was written by two sisters, Patty Hill and Mildred Hill in 1893. Those sisters probably had no idea what would develop years later from that special melody. But more than just another day, a birthday is a reminder that marks the beginning of a person’s life. Ask any Sister about that special moment when her child was born. She will have a story to tell, and rightly so. Because how well she will remember that special day, the birth of her son/daughter. Now, parties and celebrations are an important part of people’s lives every year. The young and older alike enjoy being remembered on their birthday’s.
Whether it is the first, sixteenth, fortieth or one-hundredth the anniversary of a person’s birth is a commemorating moment, and celebrated by many across the globe. A party given to someone you care about will definitely bring added joy to their day. Yes, indeed, that special day that comes around just once a year is an important day. However, not just for the birthday boy or girl, man or woman, but also, for someone else that is very special. Do you know who that special person is? If you guessed… Sister
, you guessed right. If it had not been for our moms, we would not have a birthday to celebrate. So you see, it is not just about “Me” but it is also about celebrating “Sister.” And when you do, rest assured, your birthdays will never be the same! Hurray!
