Oh, that's sweet of you guys! :)

Angi, thanks so much for remembering! Warm regards to you and Ev.

Zeppy, Mandy, eskimo, Celia, MSG (yeah, we should meet!), Levee, Nine, Idunn - the best to all of you, hope you're all well....and I hope I can soon be at least slightly more active on here than I've been lately - for one thing, I'm missing everybody else's birthdays! :lol:

Cheers! :beer:

In reality we say "Til hamingju með afmælið". :D

If you say.... :blink::blink:

So glad to see you here, Otto, hope you had a great day!

Yep, that's right. Birthday = fæðingardagur, but when you say it in Icelandic it means the exact day when you were born; and "hamingjusamur" only applies to a person that is feeling/is happy, etc. - thus the day can't be "hamingjusamur".

"Afmæli", if you take the word apart and analyze it, literally means "counting from" or "measured from", so yeah, anniversary. It's only ever used in this kind of context though, despite the fact that the word itself could be understood literally in a general sense.

And that concludes our Icelandic lesson for today... :D

Celia - having trouble pronouncing this? :o:P

Well, I'm hardly better in Portuguese..... :lol:
