Here's a bit of trivia: Who wrote "Happy Birthday to You?"
Answer: Two sisters, Mildred and Patty Hill in 1893. They were school teachers and the song was originally titled "Good Morning to All." Eventually the lyrics were changed and now it is sung world wide in many different languages. (source: Ask.com)
Gift Giving Tip #5
Always have a backup
When I see kids' toys that are very unique and affordable, I buy a few so that I'm not out running to the toy store on the way to the birthday party. Candles, wine, gift cards, and birthday cards should always be on hand for a last minute hostess gift or "oops I forgot" gift.
