Simple and sweet birthday wishes to send to friends, loved ones, and colleagues. Wishing you a Happy Birthday and many more to come. I hope all your.

You don’t need a lot of words to wish someone a happy birthday. The point is to let the special person know you’re thinking about them on their big day. You can do that with a brief birthday card message, a text, a social media post, or even by speaking to them face-to-face (what a novel idea!).

In fact, the words “happy birthday” are all you really need. But then, that might be a little too brief – not to mention generic. To help you come up with a message that’s meaningful without being verbose, here’s a list of short birthday wishes for all the important people in your life.

Note: If you’re looking for a short message for a birthday cake, we have a separate list for that.

Middle age... when "happy hour" is a nap!

Night sweats and hot flashes are nature's way of lowering your heating bill so you can save more money for your retirement.

How do you know you've hit middle-age? In preparation for a big sneeze you cross your legs really hard and hope for the best!


Funny birthday messages about gray hair

Those aren't gray hairs you see. They're strands of birthday glitter growing out of your head.

A little gray hair is a small price to pay for so much wisdom.

You know you're getting old when the little old gray-haired lady you helped across the street is your wife.

Don't worry, they are not gray hairs, they are wisdom highlights. You just happen to be extremely wise.

If gray hair is a sign of wisdom, then you're a genius!


More Funny Birthday Messages

A wise man once said, "Forget about your past, you cannot change it". I'd like to add: "Forget about your present, I didn't get you one".

I spent 3 hours searching the internet for the perfect birthday message for you and then I gave up. Happy Birthday.

I wanted to get you something truly amazing and inspiring for your birthday and then I remembered that you already have me.

Sorry I missed your birthday by several days, but happy birthday anyways!

I'm so sorry I forgot your birthday. The good news is that I also forgot your age. Happy belated Birthday!
