For the Hebrew-impaired: "may you be written for a good year," meaning
written in the Book of Life to live for another year, a traditional Rosh
Hashana greeting.

On a related note, I noticed in the Kernu and Brithenig versions of the
Child's Exercise that the word for birthday translates to "head of year,"
exactly what <ro'sh hashshanah> means in Hebrew, though it stands for the
New Year.
