holiday(s) and days off ?
Can one say : "I have a holiday", "I have one holiday" and "I have 2 holidays" ?
And what about :"I have a day off" , "I have one day off" and "I have two days off" ?
Do holidays and days off have the same meaning ?
Re: holiday(s) and days off ?
The sentences are all Ok, but the last three sentences would sound good if spoken differently as: I took a day off/one day off/two days off. because of the meaning. Holiday and day off are different.
