Gut yuntif / hag sameach to all!

Same to you.

For anyone puzzling about the meaning of Gut Yuntif, or Gut Yontef as I think it should be pronounced, the Yiddish word Yontef is an adaptation from the Hebrew Yom Tov, which means Good Day. I find the phrase amusing because Gut Yontef translates as Good Good Day.
