    Please also let us know how to say “same to you” in each of this languages.

    I have got into funny situations each year when both me and the other person whom I intend to greet say “same to you” at the same time as we assume that the other person is about to say “Happy New Year”.

    Hence, kindly do post how to say “same to you” in each of these languages.

    It was a very good question. The question has a meaning in it. The question is challenging. I think not all would come out with this question. Your question tells how detail you get into in all the areas of your interest.

    The question “How to say “Same to You” in other langauges was really a challenging one…

    I know you are getting irritated..wait wait..wait…Let you teeth not disturbd by me. I will sonn update you with an answer.

    Thanks for your clarification. However, I dont see any good point in another user (Rekha) asking why I have put Tamil Language in the last line.

    We people talk Tamil walk tamil eat tamil only when pointing or notifying what others speak and write. We dont actually be practical or apply those rules to ourselves.

    It is quite natural that it happens with most of the people.

    I only say that let us put things into practice before questioning somebody or talking about the practice.

    These kind of messages does not really need a thinking brain. This is my view point.

    I am sure that this is taken in it’s spirit.
