    Nice Day

    What does "Nice Day" mean? Is it the same with "Good Days or "Nice Days"

    Smile Re: Nice Day

    The two are very close. With some subtle differences.

    "Did you have a nice day?"
    "Did you have a good day?"

    Are both good (no punn intended) uses. To me the word "good" would mean the day was better, than a "nice" day, by a little bit.

    If you say:

    "It was a nice day."

    This would not give me the impression you had as rewarding a day as if you had said:

    "It was a good day."

    Nice, to me, would suggest there was a little bit of the day you were not happy with.

    "It was a great day."

    Is better than "a good day".

    "Nice" means pleasant, good but not great. If you say your day was "nice," it means all went well, there were no unpleasant surprises, but nothing out of the ordinary, either.
