Birthday Letter


A Birthday letter is a very personal note of good wishes to one (the recipient) celebrating the birthday. A birthday letter allows the sender to write his notes and well wishes for the birthday individual from the heart, instead of using the standard birthday greeting card, to give a more personal flavor. Usually, people prefer another medium of communication for conveying best wishes for an occasion like a birthday. However, the birthday letters make an impact on the addressee such that which is not possible with any other mode of communication. The birthday wishes are usually conveyed in an informal way.

However, certain letters can have a formal approach like while wishing someone like a teacher, senior officer, etc. The collective wishing usually forms a short letter, and ironically, the longer versions are those which convey wishes from a single person. For birthday letters, one should never delay the wishes and should, in fact, begin the letter with the best wishes for the special letter.
