Happy Birthday, Geno, or S Dnem Rozhdeniya!

Written by Mila Sanina on .

One of many cool things about twitter is that you can send birthday wishes to your favorite sports personalities, singers, authors, politicians... given they are on twitter, of course.

Today,  Penguins' Evgeni Malkin is celebrating his 27th birthday and since he is on twitter (@malkin71_) , Geno's fans have been tweeting him birthday wishes


In the best of Russian traditions, here is the 'Happy Birthday' song that each and every Russian knows and sings on a birthday. It's a classic... The central character is a crocodile and his (meaning 'crocodile's') name is Geno, too!

How to say Happy Birthday in Russian? 'S Dnem Rozhdeniya!'

So, s dnem rozhdeniya, Geno!  Or better yet... С днем рождения!


Have you ever wished a happy birthday  to your idol on twitter?
