  Happy Birthday 

Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time. The return of your birthday, if you remember it, fills you with thoughts which it seems to be the general care of humanity to escape.

The song "Happy Birthday To You'

In 1893, two sisters, Patty and Mildred Hill, teachers at a Kentucky Kindergarten, and Dr. Patty Hill, principal of the school, wrote a song entitled "Good Morning to All" as a classroom greeting. Thirty-one years later, in 1924, Robert H. Coleman published the song without the sisters' permission. He added a second verse, the familiar "Happy Birthday to You." Mr. Coleman's addition of the second verse popularized the song and, the sisters' original first verse disappeared. "Happy Birthday to You" had altogether replaced the sisters' original title, "Good Morning to All." After Mildred died in 1916, Patty, with a third sister named Jessica, took Mr. Coleman to court and proved that they legally owned the melody and are entitled to royalties from it, whenever it is sung for commercial purposes. It's considered to be the best-known and the most popular song of the English language in the world.
