Want to greet your French friends or offer well wishes during special occasions but don’t know how to say it in French? This article will teach you exactly what French greetings to say or write during the most important events.
Whether it’s a festive event like a birthday, anniversary, wedding, promotion, or holidays---or an unfortunate situation like a sickness or death in the family---stick with me here because I’ll be sharing with you how to express your well-wishes in French.
You can also get a copy of this list in a printer-friendly PDF format. It comes with free access to the French Learning Package. If you have previously signed up to join our mailing list, you can check the link shared to you before. The file is already there.
Let’s start with French birthday greetings. Birthday traditions in France are same as elsewhere: a cake, gifts, as well as singing of birthday songs. The birthday song is similar in tune to the “happy birthday to you” song you’re quite familiar with---but translated into French, of course.
Here are some common ways to greet people a happy birthday in French.
|Joyeux anniversaire !||Happy birthday!|
|Bon anniversaire !||Happy birthday!|
|Bonne fête !||Happy birthday!|
|Que tu profites encore de nombreuses années !||May you enjoy many more years!|
|Que tous tes désirs se réalisent !||May all your wishes come true!|
|Je te souhaite plein de bonheur en cette journée spéciale.||Wishing you every happiness on your special day.|
|Je te souhaite tout plein de bonheur en cette journée particulière. Passe une merveilleuse journée !||Wishing you every happiness this special day brings. Have a wonderful birthday!|
Joyeux anniversaire [zhwy euz ahn ee vehr seyr] and bon anniversaire [bohn ahn ee vehr seyr] are commonly used in France, but in French-speaking parts of Canada, it’s usually bonne fête [bohn fet].
Note: You might have noticed that in French punctuation, there is a space before the exclamation point. Like this !

|...de porcelaine||porcelain (20th)|
|...de perle||pearl (30th)|
|...de rubis||coral (35th)|
|...de diamant||diamond (60th)|
