  • Hyvää syntymäpäivää! - Happy birthday!
  • Onneksi olkoon! - Congratulations!
  • Onnea valmistumisen johdosta! - Congratulations for your graduation!
  • Paljon onnea valmistujaispäivänä! - Lots of happiness on your graduation day!
  • Onnea hääparille! - Good luck for the wedding couple!
  • Onnea koko perheelle! - Congratulations for the whole family!
  • Onnea uuden työpaikan johdosta! - Congratulations for a new job!
