    good luck message

    When can I use this sentence? I mean, is this for special days like new year or we can use it in other occasions?


    'May Good Fortune Always Shine Upon You! Good Luck!'

    'May Good Fortune Always Shine Upon You! Good Luck!'
    That's not a natural message in English. And it's certainly not a massage.
    English wishes like this usually start with "I/We wish you good luck" or simply "Good Luck", not "May ..."
    In fact most of the wishes starting with "May ..." seem to be either very formal or humourous (mock formal). I'd consider abandoning this structure for English.

    This reminds me of a scene from "Pink Panther" with the unforgettable comedian, Peter Sellers:

    Do you have for me the 'massage'?

    Re: good luck massage

    Message = here
    Massage = here

    I know which one I would prefer if someone wanted to wish me good luck!
