There are two main ways to say "happy birthday" in Spanish:

  • Formal: "¡Feliz cumpleaños!" (pronounced fay-LEEZ koo-play-AHN-yohs)
  • Informal: "¡Feliz cumple!" (pronounced fay-LEEZ KOOM-play)

Here's a breakdown of when to use each option:

  • ¡Feliz cumpleaños! is the most common and versatile way to say "happy birthday" in Spanish. It can be used in formal and informal settings, with anyone from friends and family to colleagues and acquaintances.
  • ¡Feliz cumple! is a more informal and casual way to say "happy birthday" and is typically used with close friends and family.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind:

  • You can personalize your birthday greetings by adding the person's name after the phrase, for example, "¡Feliz cumpleaños, María!" (Happy birthday, Maria!).
  • In some Spanish-speaking regions, you might also hear other variations like "¡Muchas felicidades!" (Many congratulations!) or "¡Feliz día!" (Happy day!).
