Hello,

How would you say "I want to celebrate my birthday" in french?

Is it Je veux fêter mon anniversaire, or Je veux celebrer mon anniversaire?

Thanks!

    Definitively I would say "je veux fêter mon anniversaire".
    "Célébrer" in French is much more formal and would not be used in such an informal context.
    --> le prêtre célébre la messe. (much more formal context).

    But no doubt other foreros will give you more information.

    Yes, our dear Prudence is right.

    Célébrer : la France célèbre le 100ème anniversaire de la mort de Jules Verne.
    Fêter : Tu es libre le 25 ? Je fête mes 28 ans !
