Jump to: navigation, search

mazal bueno is a Judaeo-Spanish expression meaning “good luck” and is used for all occasions. This expression is the Spanish Hebrew translation equivalent to the Yiddish expression “Mazel tov,” but the Yiddish expression is limited to luck that has already occurred and expresses “congratulations” for the past lucky occasion rather than “good luck” in general as does “mazal bueno.”
