Best wishes to you too.

I'd like to know about the phrase "best wishes to you too", I want to know whether it works as a reply when someone says things like "Happy New Year" or "Happy Mid-autumn day" to you.

Last night, someone told me "Happy mid-autumn day" and I said "Best wishes to you too".

I made it up myself but I don't think it works fine.

Can anyone help?

Thanks a lot

    Well, no-one's ever said 'happy mid-autumn day' to me, so I suppose your response is as good as any other :)
    But in general, you would repeat back whatever they said e.g. "Happy New Year to you too" or just say "you too".
