    It will be correct if you replace the comma with a semicolon.

    Re: Is this correct to say?

    I'd probably move "guys" to the end and set it off with a comma and make it two sentences.
    Thanks for the birthday wishes, guys! Enjoy your day!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
