Whether at work, school, or even home, we greet people a good day so many times unknowingly. It’s just a common phrase across every language.
Therefore, we shall learn how to say have a good day in Spanish as well. There is no one way to say so but the most common of them all is Que tenga un buen día; pronounced as tehng-gah oon bwehn dee-ah.
It can be broken down as:
Tenga = Have
un = a
buen = good
dia = day
The word que can be excluded if one wants as we often eliminate an article in English.
An informal approach to the same phrase will be Que tengas un buen día that pretty much means the same but is used to address a bachelor or a friend.
