Que tenga un buen día...

Okay, so I have a couple questions stemming from this sentance,

  1. When do you use 'buen día' instead of 'día bueno''
  2. Can I say, 'Que tenga un buen noche/semana/verano''
    2b. Does 'buen' not have a way of agreeing with the gender of the word? Buen día, and buen noche. Both correct?

Thanks so much!

Espero que tenga un buen día! =-D

Really? You would never say "Que tengas una buena noche"? What if you were taking a hot chick home with you? Couldn't your friends say "Que tengas una buena noche, Lazarus".

"Día bueno" is used in specific sentences, where "bueno" refers, not to any day, but an specific one which is good. This restriction is what characterizes the adjective when it appears after the noun. As s greeting, you'd only say "Buenos días" (or "(Que tenga un) buen día)!).

In Spain we never say "¿(Que tenga una) buena noche!", but "¡Buenas noches!".

¡(Que tengas un) buen verano!
¡(Que tengas un) buen fin de semana!
¡(Que tengas unas) buenas vacaciones!
