What is "Sto lat"?

What is Sto lat?

≈ of "Many years" in Polish. It is also sung in similar manner to "Happy birthday to you" however it has a broader usage. It's not only limited for birthdays but it's appropriate for other occasions too (like "Many years").

There is also a town in the Discworld universe with such a name.

Surprisingly I didn't know that when I had a polish girlfriend.

I love the miniseries. It's so weird  :D
