    Cool one holiday

    Hello,

    Is the use of "one" correct in this case, please?

    "I'm definitely going on holiday this year because last year I didn't have one. "

    (Here I mean "one holiday")


    Thank you
    Will

    And just to clarify, that wasn't an 'acceptable, but I'd prefer...' response.
