Happy Belated Birthday Wishes – For Close Family & Friends.

The world has come to a point where we are all so busy that we don’t have time for things that often take just a moment to complete. We might be the most tech-savvy generation but that doesn’t stop us from not only being forgetful but lazy as well. Very naturally our close friends and even relatives get upset with us for not wishing them happy belated birthday wishes especially if they remember ours without any reminders.

So we resort to Happy Belated Birthday   which often doesn’t have the same power and meaning as birthday wishes that are on time. But you never know, with the right excuse you just might be able to get your friends and family to let them slide.

Here are some birthday wishes that could save your butt in case you’ve forgotten a birthday.
