Today is my birthday! And, it happens to be a holiday in China too, “Yuanxiao Festival” or “Lantern Festival”:
Yuanxiao Festival or the Lantern Festival is a traditional Chinese holiday on the 15th day of the 1st lunar month, fourteen days after Chinese New Year’s Day (around the end of January and the beginning of February). In the country and town, people celebrate it heartily. For some reason, there is often a bigger celebration in the rural areas, especially in the North.

By clicking on the link, you would land on the SMS Hot List page:
Clicking on one greeting would have it displayed to the right in red. The user needs to enter his or her mobile number first and then the verification code (sent to the mobile mobile) to send the greeting SMS. The next month I get back to China, I would definitely try this.
