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...

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.

    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
