    Hi!
    I was wondering if there is any difference between:
    "both of you", "you both" and "the two of you".
    Thank you in advance!

    I have a question that does not seem to have been answered in the threads linked above.

    Can we say "to the both of you" or that is simply incorrect?

    E.g. Good afternoon to the both of you vs Good afternoon to both of you vs Good afternoon to the two of you

    Thanks!

    We don't use "the" before "both".
