I would like to know how to say "Happy Birthday" because my best friends birthday is coming up. I think that "Felicem" means happy. How do I say birthday?

I am sorry for the rudeness of my classmates. We are new to this site. I apologize on their part. Besides the point I would also like to know how to say birthday. :oops: :mrgreen:

You would say: Felicem natalem [tibi exopto.] "[I wish you a] happy birthday."
Ex mala malo
bono malo uesci
quam ex bona malo
malo malo malo.

Another way is felix natalis tibi.
