    Yes. Saying "hello" is a greeting. So is shaking hands, giving each other a quick kiss or any of the other (usually quite short) things people do when they meet.

    The host opens the door and greets the guests. He welcomes them. At an official reception, this will be a formal affair. Guests line up to be greeted by the hosts:

    People exchange greetings, or greet people they know, simply to be friendly: For example, they say " Hello" to one another. I saw an acquaintance across the street and I greeted him with a cheery "Hello".
