Today’s kanji is 誕生日, which is read as tanjoubi (tanh-joh-bee).
誕生日 means “birthday.”
誕 means “to be born.”
生 is the symbol for “life/birth.”
日 represents “day.”
So put all three symbols together, and you get the context of something like, “the day you were born into life?”
The stroke order for 誕生日 is shown below.
So in Japanese, to wish someone a “Happy Birthday,” you can say … おたんじょうびおめでとうございます! (Otanjoubi omedetou gozaimasu!)
Today is Mokey-chan’s birthday, so おたんじょうびおめでとうございます to her! 🙂
