    I'd like to impress my wonderful girlfriend to her birthday with this little text in czech (but I'm still very beginner):
    "Never forget, you are not alone, my every thoughts escape to you, you are my dreams, you are my awakening, you are everything that is important for me. Happy birthday!"
    Please help me to translate this somebody!!! :)
    Thank you very much in advance!!!
    Merry Christmass and Happy New Year to everybody!

    "Nikdy nezapomeň, že nejsi sama, všechny mé myšlenky utíkají k Tobě, Ty jsi mé sny, Ty jsi mé probuzení, Ty jsi všechno, co je pro mě důležité. Šťastné narozeniny!"

    I'm not sure about "Šťastné narozeniny", I don't know, what we Czechs say :). Maybe you can use English "Happy birthday" when you are not a Czech and Czechs know it from the TV.

    I think that we would just say Všechno nejlepší with meaning All the best. We don't have phrase which is equivalent to happy birthday

    dekuji moc the short answer :) it seems really strange that you don't have the Happy Birthday in czech language. Thank your help again, I wish you all the best for you:)
    Merry Christmass

    The whole phrase is Přeju ti/vam všechno nejlepší k narozeninám, meaning "I wish you all the best on your birthday." It is commonly abbreviated as Všechno nejlepší k narozeninám or just Všechno nejlepší as gementricxs indicated (usually the rest of the sentence is understood from the context). This is the typical way of saying "Happy birthday" in Czech.

    Eh, I forgot "Vsechno nejlepsi" since I celebrate my birthday only once per year! :lol:
