After sending the tweet, i looked at the sentence i composed and asked myself
"What does many happy returns mean?" I have said it all my life to friends and family also
enemies on their birthdays.
I decided to investigate why people say "many happy returns of the day" right after saying "Happy birthday"
The most logical explanation is
It is a prayer wishing one long life, returns of the day means if the day returns next year and the year after for so many years till you become an old person.With that said i would love to wish my dear friend on Twitter Demola Friday a very happy birthday and wishing him many many happy returns till infinity. He reads my stories and comments on them and i appreciate him.
