Why does Frosty say "Happy birthday!" when the hat is placed on his head?
iirc, and it has been many a moon since I've seen the Frosty the Snowman TV Special, he says "happy birthday" because the magic top hat is the hat of a magician performing tricks at a child's birthday party. The magician is in the middle of a trick using the hat when the wind somehow liberates said hat from the magician mid-trick and yadda yadda and there you have it. The "Happy Birthday" is the magical stutter of "majika interruptus"

in the matrix its a deja-vous from the system resetting to correct an error
