My friend's birthday was yesterday. Is there any interesting way to say "Happy Belated Birthday" such as 御誕生昨日, 御誕生先日, 御誕生前日
Will it translate or will it just seem strange?
Note: I am not trying to just say "sorry I forgot your birthday, happy belated birthday". Rather I'm trying to be cute with language play
In English I can make any numbrer of dumb jokes any pretty much anyone fluent in English will get it.
- Happy Day After your Birthday!
- Happy Un-Birthday! (reference to Alice in Wonderland).
- Happy Birth(Yester)day!
- Happy 3 days after 2 days before your Birthday
They might not be funny haha but pretty much any one fluent in English would get what is trying to be said and get that message and intention.
Is there a way to say something similar in Japanese?
