Birthday Wishes in French

A few common ways to say “Happy Birthday” in French are:

Bon Anniversaire
Pronounced bohn ahn ee vehr sare, this is the most general French version of saying “Happy Birthday”. You will see many greeting cards with these two words splashed across them, and among younger people this birthday phrase is most common. While this phrase is perfect for acquaintances, good friends can also use it with a warm tone of voice, making it just as friendly as the more formal version: joyeux anniversaire.

Joyeux Anniversaire
Slightly more traditional, this phrase (pronounced jwhy euhz ahn ee vehr sare) is a bit warmer than bon anniversaire, and can be used among close friends and family. While joyeux anniversaire and bon anniversaire are virtually interchangeable in France, this expression evokes a friendlier atmosphere thanbon anniversaire.

Bonne Fête
In Québec, and other parts of French-speaking Canada, it is more common to say bonne fête(pronounced buhn fet) than to use the first two expressions. Of course, you will be well understood in Québec if you wish someone a joyeux anniversaire; however, you’re more likely to hear the locals wishing each other a bonne fête.
