… and more good luck. Bah, always the same words – GOOD LUCK. The time is now to learn other ways of wishing it.
- BREAK A LEG – If you have an actor or musician friend who is about to go on stage to perform, then this is the phrase to use. You can’t use it in other situations and neither should you say
break your leg
- FINGERS CROSSED – You can say and do it. Be aware that in some countries, crossing your fingers does not mean GOOD LUCK
- BEST OF LUCK – The superlative form of good is best, so is BEST OF LUCK stronger than merely GOOD LUCK? I don’t think so.
- GODSPEED – We wish this when someone is going on a journey, possibly involving difficulties or challenges. For example, in 2008 I went on a 10-day adventure, covering 2200 kilometres from France to Morocco by bicycle. Before setting off, my family and friends wished we GODSPEED.
- ALL THE BEST – This can be used in any situation.
Does FINGERS CROSSED or crossing your fingers mean GOOD LUCK in your country or does it have another meaning? Or no meaning?
