Learn English – When can I use “have a good day”?


I just want to ask if when would be the exact time to use have a good day? Because someone told me that the appropriate time would be in morning. Is that correct?

While I agree with most of what WS2 says, they have not answered your specific question, which is about whether Have a good day is limited to the morning. And the answer is No, it is not. If you use it, you can use it any time of the day, though probably not when it is getting dark.

And contra WS2, who has assumed you are using the phrase with a stranger as a conventional farewell, there are contexts where I suspect even WS2 would use it with no qualms: when waving friends or family off for a day out somewhere.
