1、贺生日 Congratulations on a birthday
So you're a year older today —— or don't you want to be reminded? Anyway, congratulations and best wishes.
If you feel like holding a celebration, will you let me take you to dinner and the movies, as a sort of birthday treat? You name the day. And in the mealtime, many happy returns!
2.、祝贺朋友大学毕业 Congratulations on graduation
Dear Mr. Li:
I learned from Wang Ying that you were graduated with high honors from Huabei University yesterday. I can well imagine how proud of you your parents are now, who have been anxiously hoping to witness your brilliant success. As I understand, you will continue studies in the United States soon. I wish you greater success in your studies and research work.
With best wishes.
3.、祝贺朋友在运动会上获胜 Congratulations on winning a game
Mother sent me the clippings about your success at the swimming meet. Naturally, I am not surprised at all, but I thought I'd just say “Congratulations” where are going to find room for another silver cup? Some of our girls may be going up to the Tri-State meet. If the tape unrolls straight, and there I shall expect to see you win again.
When we're all home for Thanksgiving vacation, we'll have to hold a real celebration.
Your one-time swimming rival.
4.、祝贺新年 A letter extending New Year greetings
