What is the best way to celebrate the day you were born?
By showing you how much you mean to other people!
I chose a few of fans' best wishes and gifts to share with you.
Let´s Start with Birthday Wishes and a Portrait from Sabrina
“Don't get all weird about getting older.
Our age is merely the number of years the world has been enjoying us.
Happy Birthday and have a wonderful day, Misha “
Wishes from Svenja
“You're playing an Angel in our beloved show and I'm more than grateful that you did it for so long.
I believe that there are Angels among us and you're definitely one of them, walking on this earth!
You showed me and so many others that it is totally okay to be kind of weird,
to be proud of not being normal and to be loyal and supporting at the same time. Thank you so much for that!
I send much love from Germany and wish you a very Happy Birthday!”

A Birthday Message and Drawing from Cat
“MISHA, your portrayal of an angel brings me much joy but your actions to inspire and motivate people into doing acts of kindness
whilst embracing their own uniqueness, and using your intelligence and talents to make the world a better place,
make you a real angel in a world gone mad.
May the love of life you share enrich you tenfold “

Bex wrote a Poem about Castiel that she wants to share with you.
The bluest eyes I´ve ever seen belong to an angelic man.
He tilts his head to the side when he does not understand.
His wings are black as the darkest night, his soul is full of grace.
And when I face my hardest times I often picture his face.
I know in the end it all will work and everything will be just fine,
the trench coat wearing angel always soothes my fevered mind.
Wishes from Deborah
יומ הולדת טוב?!
“Happy Birthday to a charitable man hitting middle age but remaining a teenager in some respects. Good on you mate.“
Birthday Greetings from Birgit
Wishes from Jessica
“Happy Birthday Misha, Love ya lots. Thanks for all that you do. You truly are an angel. God bless you and your family.“
Heartfelt Words from Sarah
"Happy 46th birthday Misha!
Thank you so much for all that you’ve done.
Your never-ending kindness, compassion, and generosity inspires me everyday.
Your words of wisdom are what sparks inspiration in me most often.
As a result, in recent years I’ve started to work towards being the best version of myself.
One quote that I hold onto dearly is “I want to live in a world where normal is an insult.”
Growing up, I was almost always the odd one out because I acted differently than most of my peers.
After years of ridicule, I conformed to how society wanted me to be.
This made me incredibly unhappy.
In these past four years, you’ve changed my life so much.
Your words of acceptance and love helped me find the courage to be who I am with no regrets.
Through this incredible community that you’ve created,
I was able to find loving and supporting people who love me for who I am, quirks and all.
Thank you for helping me find the courage to be the most authentic version of myself.
I hope that you have a day that is as wonderful as you are.
With lots of love, Sarah."
Words of Gratitude and a Collage of Drawings from Claudia
“Dear Misha, I wish you all the best for this birthday in an extraordinary and extremely significant year.
Through Supernatural I got to know GISH and have now played for the third year in a row (including the two little hunts).
At first, I thought that it was not for me as I was on crutches and later on a walker.
But thanks to a tweet, I got to know the Gishwhesvirgins and found out that GISH is also accessible to people with disabilities.
The feeling was intoxicating.
I learned to test and exceed my own limits.
Last year, after my second hip surgery, I turned to painting in rehab, which of course benefits me now in many items.
This "little" scavenger hunt has taken my creative spirit from a low to heights previously unimaginable for me.
Although I have been struggling with depression and PTSD, this year I was co-captain during the three hunts and helped to organize the team.
Next year, I might be running my own team.
For November, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you, your country (and the rest of the world).
I hope that we two artificial hips can hug each other at the PurCon.
All my love “
Drawings and Wishes from Amy
“Misha, I hope you have the best of days filled with lots of love and lots of cake! Happy Birthday.“

Now Some Words and Photographic Edits from me to You:
"Misha, I want to thank you for "Gish(whes)". I love to get weird and creative with my Team TheLastOfTheMishacans every year.
And thanks to you & GISH, I finally got my AKF Tattoo last year."
"You are not only playing an angel, you are one. I can´t wait to see your future plans.
I hope your birthday is as weird and special as you are.
Happy Birthday, Misha.
Enjoy your day with your loved ones and stay safe."
