I suppose the reason for the popularity of Happy Belated Birthday (if only in Googleland) is the fact that we"re just not used to putting the Happy bit anywhere else but the beginning
of such exclamations:Happy 50th BirthdayHappy HanukkahMerry Christmas và a Happy New Year. So the brain"s just starting with the bit that usually comes first.Also, I can"t think of many other good uses for the word belated:They sent me belated birthday greetingsI arrived belated for my appointmentThe train was belatedblah blah blah.
As has been said, in AE it is very usual khổng lồ say "Happy Belated Birthday". When I first heard it, I explained it khổng lồ myself by saying that today is no longer the birthday, but I want lớn celebrate the birthday anyway, so I name this day "Belated Birthday" và wish the person a happy "today", Happy Belated Birthday. Not sure if that makes sense outside my tortured imaginings, however.
