Frosty the Snowman is a popular Christmas cartoon about a snowman who comes to life when a magical hat is placed upon his head. Do you know (or remember) what the first words are that frosty says when he comes to life? “Happy birthday!”

I’ve always believed that birthdays are magical moments for connecting and celebrating. Birthdays give us the chance to stay connected with our network and acknowledge the people we know and care about in a personalized and meaningful way. January is my birthday month and the time of year I update my birthday calendar. I continue to add to my birthday calendar all year, every time I meet someone I want to remember and celebrate.

There are many ways to say happy birthday; here are the top 20 in the world. I look forward to exchanging birthday greetings with you this year.
