How do you write "happy birthday" in French?


Happy birthday in French is typically written as "joyeux anniversaire," which literally means "joyous birthday." "Bon anniversaire" is another way to wish someone a happy birthday, with "bon" meaning "good."

In the French-speaking areas of Canada, "bonne fête" is a prevalent birthday greeting. "Bonne fête" literally means "good party or holiday," but it is more of a generic term that is also used for other festive occasions. In French, "anniversaire," the word for birthday, is a masculine noun, which is why the masculine form of "bon" is used with it. "Fête," the word for party or holiday, is a feminine noun and takes the feminine form "bonne."
