    fair morrow

    Does the archaic expression "fair morrow" mean

    a) greeting -"Good morning"
    b) just stating that the morning is fair -"It's a lovely morning."

    Thanx a lot!

    Re: fair morrow

    Properly - a fair morning of the next day >> "morrow" = the next day/tomorrow; an extension of archaic "morn"
