In today's technology-orientated world, a text message sent to a friend or loved on his birthday is not uncommon. Sending a text can be both a convenient option for sending birthday wishes, as well as a casual one. Sending a text allows you to send birthday greetings when you might not have been comfortable calling to relay the message to them or have been too busy to call.

Happy Birthday Song
To make someone smile on his birthday, a rendition of the classic birthday song is standard procedure. This can also make for a creative birthday text. Text the lyrics to the birthday song to the birthday boy. The words are: ,"Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear (insert friend's name), happy birthday to you." Feel free to abbreviate certain words to make the text message shorter, as shorteing words is commonplace for texting. For example, "birthday" can become "bday."
Instead of a simple "happy birthday," relay some simple, though personal, sentiments in the text. Express to the person your hopes for them to have a wonderful birthday because they deserve it. You could also say something silly, though loving, such as "I am so glad you were born today." Combine a simple "happy birthday" message with a simple "I love you," message to create a loving and personal birthday greeting sent via text. To shorten the text, you can abbreviate the birthday portion of the message to "HBTY" or "HBTU," short for "happy birthday to you."
Text messages can often be inadvertently sent to the wrong recipient. Make a joke out of this common error by sending the birthday individual the "wrong" greeting. For example, send a text to the birthday individual that reads "Geez can you believe John is 30 today? He is over the hill!" Immediately follow up with a text that says, "Just kidding, happy birthday you old man!" This will start the recipients birthday with a laugh.
Icons and Graphics
Text messaging often incorporates a variety of images and graphics. Incorporate these into a text message for a fun and entertaining birthday text. For example, accent a birthday greeting such as "Happy birthday and have a fab day," with a smiley face or an image of balloons or even cake. This will relay the celebratory tone of your text in more than just words. It will also make the text more personal and set apart from a typical text message.
