Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

Where is it actually used? At school we are told to use Good morning! and Good afternoon!, and when I was in England I was told this phrase is not in nowadays use. But I think it's just Britain. I've heard it in an Czech PC game about the US spoken by Italians, and I think it's used in Australia and New Zealand, too, because id G'day! is, Good day! must be, too. Am I right?

In the U.S., good day is uncommon. It is a very formal way to say goodbye, usually to be polite while still expressing some anger. We use good morning, good afternoon, good evening, but normally not good day. Of course, the Aussies say g'day all the time. —Stephen 11:34, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

I do use "good day" every day in phone communication, I work in office where I communicate with callers from different time zones. I do live in Australia, where many people use greeting good day. Bluepossum (talk) 01:19, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
