    Hi all!

    I've got an email from a friend of mine with the following sentence in it : "HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND ALL YOUR CARE ALSO"

    The thing is that I don't get the last part; does it mean something like : "... and to all those close to you"?

    Many thanks in advance and hope you had a good one.

    The use of "happy" makes me think BE, and also because it doesn't quite make sense to me - but I would guess, ...and to your family.

    Sure - best that you await one of the UK people to help you out, though. Where is your friend from?

    Happy Christmas is a phrase also widely used in Ireland.

    The end of the sentence however does not make sense, perhaps he meant "and all in your care also".
