What does MMHRD stand for?

Many Many Happy Returns of the Day

MMHRD stands for "many many happy returns of the day," which is a phrase people use to wish others good fortune. This phrase is typically used on a person's birthday, and it is used by British, Indian, and Irish English speakers more than Americans.

Many many happy returns of the day is a salutation that has been used since the 18th century. While the phrase is still sometimes used to wish others well during the holidays, it is most often used to wish a person continuing good health on their birthday. The "returns," in this case, are the many additional birthdays the sender hopes you'll be celebrating.
