German and English are similar because they have similar roots with a lot of saxon influence. The same is equally true of Dutch. Most Western European langauges have the same basic route from old Latin, so it is relatively easy ot pick up a number of words in French, Italian and Spanish. Haben Sie einen guten Tag

I'm not sure what you said. Is Haben had? Is Guten Tag good night?

It's kind of a literal translation for a "have a good day", word for word means "have you a good day"

I know what good morning means but I don't know anymore then that except for Guten Tag! Which is Good Night I believe. Of course I used to try to learn Dutch and Spanish. I know how to say I love you in Dutch, and a few things in spanish.

Well ... many words have the same roots and a similar sound in English and German. But German grammar is considerably more complicated than is English grammar. Take the genus: a lot to learn for foreigners when it comes to "the" which could be "der" or "die" or "das" for male/female/neutral nouns ... and knowing the genus .... follow different declinations of article, nouns and adjectives.
