    holiday or holidays

    Hello there. I am planning to send an eblast to my clients before they go on holiday. Please advise what message subject would be correct:

    (COMPANY NAME) WISH YOU ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAY

    (COMPANY NAME) WISH YOU ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAYS

    Thank you for your help.

    If I were in your shoes, I'd write: Hope you enjoy your holiday(s). With the verb wish retained, I'd suggest: Wish you enjoyable holidays.

    Longman dictionary.
    British English speakers say holiday, not holidays in the structures be on holiday, go on holiday and return/come back from holiday
    something to read when you are on holiday (NOT when you are on holidays)
    When you come back from holiday, it's hard to work (NOT When you come back from holidays).

    Holidays is usually used after the, my, your etc
    Soon it will be the holidays.
    Where do you want to go for your holidays?
    !! Do not say 'be in (your) holidays' or 'go in (your) holidays'. Say go on holiday or go on your holidays or be on holiday or be on your holidays.
    !! Do not say 'make a holiday'. Say have a holiday
