The words may be different, but the love you feel when someone wishes you a happy birthday is universally known. Birthdays aren't just about.
When you’re late with sending your best wishes for someone’s birthday, you have plenty of options for saying you’re sorry you’re late and that you still wish them a happy birthday. If you’re using the word “belated,” however, have no doubt—happy belated birthday is the wrong way of doing it. Belated happy birthday is the correct formulation.
It seems that today it’s almost impossible to not know when someone’s birthday is, and we have social networks to thank for that. Facebook will notify you when one of your friends has a birthday and so will LinkedIn. Google+ will enter your connections’ birthdays into your calendar. Even Skype, which is not even a social network, will remind you to send birthday wishes to your contacts. But we still manage to forget about (or procrastinate on) sending best wishes for birthdays now and again. And that’s when the late greetings come into play.
Here’s a tip: Want to make sure your writing always looks great? Grammarly can save you from misspellings, grammatical and punctuation mistakes, and other writing issues on all your favorite websites.
The go-to late birthday greeting contains the phrase “happy birthday” and the word belated. It comes up in two variants—happy belated birthday, and belated happy birthday. One of the two might be more commonly used in the United States, and funnily enough, it’s the one that’s not exactly logical—happy belated birthday. Let’s see why.
The word belated means that something is late or delayed. If you wrote the phrase happy belated birthday but changed the word belated to its synonym “late,” you’d get happy late birthday. And this might be correct if the birthday were the thing that was late, but since a birthday is the anniversary of someone’s birth it can’t be late—or early, for that matter. Greetings can be late, however, so it makes much more sense to say late happy birthday, which is why belated happy birthday is the correct formulation. When you write the greeting correctly, belated modifies the phrase happy birthday. When you write it incorrectly, happy modifies the phrase belated birthday. You should keep this in mind when sending other greetings as well.
