1. French Birthday Greetings

 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 !

2. French Wedding Anniversary Greetings

Wondering how to greet a married couple in French during their wedding anniversary? Here are some ways.

Joyeux anniversaire !Happy Anniversary!
Joyeux ...(ème) anniversaire de mariage !Happy __th Anniversary!
Félicitations pour vos noces….Congratulations on your ______ wedding anniversary!
...de porcelaineporcelain (20th)
...d’argentsilver (25th)
...de perlepearl (30th)
...de rubiscoral (35th)
...d'émerauderuby (40th)
...d'orgolden (50th)
...de diamantdiamond (60th)

You might have noticed that joyeux anniversaire is the same phrase listed previously for birthday greetings. And...you’re absolutely right! While this may seem weird to non-French speakers, in French, anniversaire covers so much more than just anniversary; it can also refer to birthdays.

3. How to Offer Your Condolences in French
