    Default wish you a/- happy holidays

    Could you please suggest which of the following sentences is correct:
    a. I wish you a happy holidays.
    b. I wish you happy holidays.
    Normally, I would say it without an article (because holidays are in plural) but I see it often written with an article. Thank you for clarifying this!
