Trivia # 48: "Happy Birthday to You" Birthday


Did you know...

... that today is the birthday of "Happy Birthday to You"?
Mildred J. Hill composed the tune for a song then known as
"Good Morning to All," first published in 1893, as a greeting
song for teachers to sing to their students. Her sister Patty
Smith Hill wrote the lyrics and, in 1924, added a stanza that
became the now popular birthday song, "Happy Birthday to You."
So think of Mildred and Patty whenever you sing out the
birthday song. ;-)
