Where did the happy birthday song come from?
The origin of the happy birthday song is murky at best, but we do know that the song has been sung for over 100 years. The song was published in a book in 1893 by American sisters Patty and Mildred Hill, but it was not copyrighted until 1935.
The story is that the song came to be when the Hill sisters heard their classroom of children wishing each other a happy birthday with the phrase "happy birthday to you" and then singing the same tune, with different words.
This is disputed by musicologist Amy Wallace who points out that the song was published in a book called "The Nursery Rhyme Book" (1893) and that the song was copyrighted in 1935, some 20 years after the sisters published it. It is still sung at birthday parties, but it is now sung to the tune of "This Old Man".
The song was originally titled "Happy Birthday (To You)". The lyrics were changed in the 1930s and again in the 1950s.
