This is an agelong and most common way of responding to a person who wishes you good. It is the civic day in August and a person wishes you a happy civic day, if you wish to go for a simple response you can just say ‘Thank you’.
This can be accompanied by a hug or a pat on the back. It is your way of telling the person that you are grateful for the wishes and that you have accepted them with an open heart.
Wishing you a happy civic day too
The statement ‘wishing you a happy civic day too’ is more or less a return of investment on good wishes. It shows that the person you are speaking to had taken the initiative to wish you a happy civic day first.
It is simple, cordial and straight to the point. Even if you have never celebrated a civic day before and you come across a person wishing you a happy civic day, you can use this response to wish them back.
I wish you the same, partner.
Did your partner at home or at the office wish you a happy civic day and you don’t know what to say? You can use this reply ‘I wish you the same, partner’ to wish them back.
Even if the person wishing you is a total stranger, it does not prevent you from using the response. The term ‘partner’ could be used in a loose term to mean a friend.
Gracias, love the costume!
Gracias is the Spanish way of saying thank you. Just like Merci, it is not just used by those who own the language. You can use it if the person you are speaking to is Spanish.
Also, during celebrations like the civic day, most people tend to go in costumes to either represent a hero that they admire or a culture that they wish to portray.
Either way, when a person wishes you a happy civic day, you can use ‘gracias, love the costume’ as a way to reply.
For sure, have a good day!
Another worthy reply that you can give to a person who wishes you a happy civic day is ‘for sure, have a good day’. Not only are you accepting the greeting, but you are also wishing the person good.
You should be smiling and enthusiastic while responding so that the other person will share in your joy. The other person will also be pleased that you recognized their wishes.
It sure is, I have the day off.
Just in case you do not know, Civic Day in Canada is not a statutory holiday but just a day that the citizens use to celebrate dynamic culture, history and national heroes.
However, in the spirit of celebration, some bosses like to give their employees the day off. Therefore, if you are one of those who has the day off you can use ‘it sure is, I have the day off’ as a way to respond to a person who wishes you a happy civic day.
Be sure to tell me all about how you spent your day.
The Civic Day celebration is not complete until all the tea has been spilt. When a close friend, colleague or family member wishes you a happy civic day, be sure to wish them back.
If perhaps, you are not there to spend the day with them, you may want to hear about how they spent their day – the costumes they wore, the places they went to, the pictures they took, whether or not they joined a parade, etc.
Wanting to know about how a person spent his or her will make them happy and they will also know that you care about them and that you love them.
I hope my day is as happy as yours, I still have to go to work.
A civic day in Canada is not a legislative or statutory public holiday. Most people just refer to it as a holiday because they get to stay back from work or close their businesses for the day.
However, not all bosses share in the spirit of the celebration. Some will still insist that their employees show up to work and the employees can’t say ‘no’; well, unless they want to lose their jobs.
If you are that employee and you still have to show up at work during a civic day, this statement ‘I wish my day is as happy as yours, I still have to go to work’ is the best response you could give to a person that wishes you a happy civic day.
Thanks, what’s your plan for the civic day?
When a person wishes you a happy civic, especially someone that you are familiar with, it may not be enough to just appreciate them. Showing interest in what they have to do for the day will also show them you care.
When a person sends you a text or tells you happy civic day, you should ask them what their plan for the day is. As they share the plans they have for that day, the excitement increases in both parties.
This wish works well if you are speaking to your partner, your child or a close pal.
Damn right, it is, I am going on a mini vacation to celebrate the civic day.
While some people take the civic day lightly, there are others who take it seriously. This means they go far in their celebration of this special day. They do all the work.
They create a costume, throw a party, host a history book reading, organize a charity event, go bowling with friends, go fishing with family, etc. If you have something planned for the civic day, you might want to share it with the person who wishes you a happy civic day.
It may not be a mini vacation, whatever it is, be sure to share.
Yup, I’ve been waiting for this day the whole year.
The amount of people who love the holidays is like the sand by the sea. There are people, however , who love special holidays. For instance, in Canada, the first of August is a remarkable day that most Canadians look forward to.
It may be the excitement of the day, the creative costume that most people put on, the march parade or the dancing or even the food. Whatever it is, the spirit of the holiday gets people excited.
If you are one of those people who cannot wait to celebrate Civic Day, then the best response for you is ‘Yup, I’ve been waiting for this day the whole year’.
So kind of you to wish me well, thank you.
It is unfortunate that during certain celebrations of the year, some people are selfish with their wishes. They do not join in on the celebration and they don’t wish others a good day.
This is why you should not take for granted a person who wishes you well on a civic day. If someone takes the effort to remember you and wish you a happy civic day, be sure to reply, ‘So kind of you to wish me well, thank you’.
Wishing you all the same, lunch is on me.
What could make a person happy aside from getting a response to their good wishes? A gift. No matter how small the gift is, it is the thought that counts.
For instance, if you are occupying a top position in a company or you are the boss of a small business, you could give your workers a holiday allowance or better yet sponsor their lunch for the day.
Everyone loves free stuff and this reply ‘Wishing you all the same, lunch is on me’ will make the day of an average Canadian.
