Short birthday wishes, when written well, can be just what you need to make your loved ones feel special on their birthday, but they should only be used in special circumstances (in my opinion).
Personally, I prefer short birthday wishes when I send my birthday greetings to family, friends, lovers and colleagues via text, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest or LinkedIn — when brevity is essential.
What I love most about short birthday wishes, though, is their universality, their warmth, despite their length, which could sometimes hamper their appeal.
You really shouldn't opt for short birthday messages when you can use a greeting card or eCard to send your birthday wishes. That's because you'll have all the room you need for a longer birthday greeting.
Keep in mind: Whether or not you choose to send short birthday wishes, it's always important to fully express how you feel about the birthday boy or girl.
