Feliz cumpleaños.

Cumplir = to complete
años = years
cumpleaños = completing of the years

This reply is great. I've learned something new about my own native language today.

I'm a native Spanish speaker, and I never saw the word "Cumpleaños" "crumbled" this way. Thanks

It is usual "X cumple años el 2 de abril". It is a hint.

You can’t be serious. Have you been chained inside a cave in a wilderness?

So that means the same thing as happy birthday to someone speaking spanish?

Yes, it does Feliz cumpleaños is happy birthday

Happy Birthday -> Feliz Cumpleaños

Here's a link to the song in Spanish if you'd like to listen to it: (There are differentiating versions and this is just one of them). Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBE6B87FFrc

This is how you say "Happy birthday" in Spanish: ¡Feliz cumpleaños! :D Have a great day! Here is a Lingot for you!

So as a native spanish speak what did people say on your birthday? What did you say on someone else’s birthday?

Is there a Spanish alternative you have used?
