Brothers are funny old things.
You can’t live with them, but you can’t live without them either.
You’re allowed to say whatever horrible things you like about (and to) each other too.
But nobody else is…and god help them if they try.
Despite the jokes, insults, and occasional rough and tumbles, though, brothers enjoy a special bond that deserves recognition, especially on their birthday!
After all, sending happy birthday wishes to a brother is the perfect chance to let them know how much they mean to you.
The tricky part’s figuring out what to say!
If you’re looking for some help with that exact task, then you’re in the right place.
With 2 older brothers of my own to call upon for inspiration, I thought I’d assemble a long list of ways to say “happy birthday my brother”. Enjoy!
