I'd like to know in english: ¡Que tengas un buen día!
Thanks for helping me.
Have a nice day!
Thanks! Is also possible "Enjoy your day"?
Hi. Yes, it's possible, although it's more the kind of thing you'd say to someone for a specific reason... say, if it was their birthday or they were visiting somewhere for the day. "Have a nice day" is just the standard "Que tengas un buen día" phrase (although it sounds a bit American).
So what´s the "standard" on your side of the pond?
I think we just say the same thing, but for some reason "Have a nice day" sounds typically American.
It's a little less estadounidense (remembering that Colombia, Chile, Mexico, Peru, etc are also American) if you say "Hope you have a good day". Which, I notice, is also a little more literal.
Of course there are other options, such as "have a good day/night" or "have a good one". These are actually much more common, at least in my area.
"Have a nice day" actually sounds a little too polite and forced for everyday use, anyone agree?
Like it´s Kina "California-girl" Ya know what I mean?
I think it was the flood of "Have a nice day" yellow smiley faces that ruined the phrase for me.
Separate names with a comma.
