Happy Birthday

<br />What do you say to someone when it's their birthday? I've discovered that "fortuna dies natalis" means Happy Birthday. What are some other things someone would say in Latin to the birthday boy (or girl)?<br />

I believe one such phrase is "Laetam tibi natalem diem" (a happy day of birth to you!).
flebile nescio quid queritur lyra, flebile lingua murmurat exanimis, respondent flebile ripae
