How to wish someone a good / happy…

In English we have set expressions for certain, particular occasions:

Happy birthday!

“Happy birthday! Have a wonderful day.”

Happy anniversary!

Merry Christmas and happy New Year!

Happy Mother’s / Father’s Day!

 

For wishes about good days, weeks, weekends, it is necessary to start with “Have a…”:

“Have a good day.”

“Have a nice week.”

“Have a lovely weekend.”

Note: “Have a” cannot be omitted.

 

Here are ways to combine the above:

“Happy birthday! Hope you have a great day!”

“Thanks for your message. Have a good week.”

“Happy anniversary! Hope you enjoy your day together.”
