Happy Birthday

Way back in 1893 a six-year-old little girl came to kindergarten in Louisville, Kentucky. With her face all aglow, she went directly to her teacher, Patty Hill, and whispered in her ear, “Miss Hill,  this is my sixth birthday!”
  With that, an idea flashed through the teacher’s mind, and she announced to her class, “Children, this is Bertha’s birthday. Let’s all sing a song for her.”
  They did, and when it came out it sounded much like the “Happy Birthday” song we sing today.
  Miss Hill liked it and jotted down the brief words. She took them home that evening and asked her sister, Mildred, a music teacher and a church organist, to write music to go with the words.
  Mildred did, and so today we have our most sung song in history.
  It’s a song sung at birthday parties all over the world, every day and in virtually every language.
  And so because a little girl back in the
19th century happened to have a birthday and told her teacher about it, we have a song that brings joy to millions of people young and old alike.
To Bertha, Patty Hill, and Miss Hill’s sister Mildred. I say, “Thank you!”
