Birthdays come once a year, one in every three hundred and sixty five days. Just like it is to a doctor performing a major surgery and to the patient undergoing the said surgery. To the doctor, it is just another day at work, but to the patient, it is a very big day in their life.
To anyone who is not celebrating, it might look like any other day, but to the one celebrating, it is one of the most important days of the year, if not the most important.
So missing a birthday wish might seem unforgettable. Yet there’s always a chance to deliver your birthday wishes and pacify your friends and family when you forget. Simply send them belated wishes. Here are some brilliant belated happy birthday wishes to make your friend feel pacified after forgetting their day.
