Hello zilazila
At first, you should know that "congratulations" is always used as noun, and more common than the singular "congratulation" then "Congratulations" (plural) when used as an interjection.
Lots of congratulations! (plural)
You are sending something of congratulation.
"Thank you for your words of congratulation" (singular)or "to say to someone congratulation on something (singular)
But
My congratulations on your graduation. (the same as in French)
You send your congratulations.(plural) You send a telegram of congratulation.(singular)
Did you pass your driving tests? - Yes I got my license - Congratulations! (interjection = plural)
Or "Congrats"
Here is above what I know about.
I hope it helps.
It is down to "C" levels, to agree with my explanation or not.
Greetings to the whole forum.

Hello
I seem to see this word in the plural when it is an interjection : Congratulations ! Cheers ! Best wishes !
I haven't met it much in the singular.

Hello zilazila, hello gérondif, hello everybody
Yes, the singular exists.
You have not met it, because as I explained to you "congratulations" is always used as noun, and more common than the singular".
As an interjection the plural is imperatively required.
I found this question interesting, and remained without any answer.
If I can share what I know, I do it with great pleasure.

"I sent a letter of congratulation on their wedding" is correct but you would most likely never meet it.
I'll add that this is a very British expression.
The Americans like repeatedly to use informal expressions.
"Congrats".
I enjoy talking to them at the "club" because they are very friendly.
Kind regards.
