    Wish

    A: This year's Halloween was so much fun.

    B: Yes, I wish everyday was Halloween.

    Should B use 'was' in the above sentence? Or 'is' should be used? Any difference?

    Thanks!

    'Is' is incorrect. 'Every day' needs to be two words.

    Who's going to be the first to insist that "I wish every day were Hallowe'en" is the right answer?!
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
