    Default Slang: Have a good one

    Hi,

    I live in Chicago and I have heard 'have a good one' along with 'have a good day/night/evening'.
    Is it popular in the US only? It probably takes its origins from the latter.

    Thanks,
    Alex.

    I think it might have originated in the US, but I hear it quite often in the UK now.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
