When I say, "Feliz año" to Mexicans, they usually mutter something and trail off. Is this a standard response to my holiday valediction, am I being dissed, or am I being neurotic?

Can you tell us maybe what it sounds like they're saying? This might help clue us in... –  Flimzy Jan 2 '12 at 4:16

I'm mexican and when someone says to you "Feliz año" you usually respond:

Gracias, igualmente.

Thank you, this sounds like the right amount of syllables in the response. –  Nick Jan 2 '12 at 15:10

Of course, if you like being neurotic, I can point out that there are a lot of other messages with that same amount of syllabes :-p –  SJuan76 Jan 3 '12 at 13:36
