Letter: forgotten to send birthday greetings to a close friend

You suddenly realise that you have forgotten to send birthday greetings to a close friend. 

Write a short letter apologising for and explaining your forgetfulness, giving reasons for it and explaining how you will try to make him/her forgive you. 

Use between 120 and 150 words.

Dear John, 

I am extremely sorry for the belated birthday greeting! I do not know how to apologise for this overlook. 

I know that your birthday is on the 25th of December, but unfortunately, I was on a trip at the Danube for Christmas, and I mixed up the days. As we stayed there a whole week, with minimum internet service and simply relaxing and hanging out, I honestly forgot what day it was. 

It was not until I came back on the 27th that I realised that I had missed your birthday and, in the process, failed to wish you and your family Happy Holidays. 

How about I make it up to you by inviting you to spend New Year’s Eve with my family and friends at our cabin in Apuseni? We could go skiing too, as I know you love it. 

Let me know what you think, and, again, Happy belated birthday!

Talk to you soon,
