Once upon a time, you had to actually remember someone’s birthday, pick them up a greeting card, write some words in it by hand, and get it in the mail well before their big day.
Nowadays, technology does practically all the work for you. You get a notification the day of someone’s birthday through Facebook or your calendar app, and can instantly fire off a quick birthday wish.
On the birthday girl or boy’s side, that same technology makes it easy to thank everyone for their thoughts. The day after your birthday, you can simply type out “thanks for all the birthday wishes” and broadcast the message via your medium of choice. Done and done.
Yes, you could do that, but why not put a little more effort into it? Here are some unique thank you’s in a range of styles, from sincere to silly. While they’re ideal for sharing on Facebook, these wording ideas are useful anytime you want to thank a whole group for their thoughtful birthday wishes.
Here are some simple and straightforward ways to say thank you to all the people who wished you a Happy Birthday.
