    Hello, is it possible to say "Dziś mam urodziny" i.e. using the verb mieć just like Germans, Hungarians or Czechs use? Thanks.

    I could say "Dziś mam urodziny".

    I could also say "Dziś są moje urodziny" or "Dzisiaj są moje urodziny".

    For what it's worth, I think I might be more likely to say "Mam dziś urodziny." in a neutral context.

    Thank you, I just wanted be sure. So both "mieć urodziny" and "dziś są moje urodziny" sound OK in Polish.

    Both sentences are equally correct, but they differ in the sentence stress, and can be used in different settings.
