Subject: Birthday and Christmas slang

I still haven't taken my sabbatical.... The "gasper" discussion roped me back


Question for yunz: does anyone know of any Happy Birthday slang?... For

example, alternate ways of saying "Happy Birthday" in different parts of the

country.... Or birthday-related slang in general.... Also, looking for

Christmas-related slang....

Thanks (Ralph) Bunche...
