Are all of these sentences correct?
(talking about summer)
1.I'd like to invite you to Spain for your holidays.
2.I'd like to invite you to Spain for holidays.
3.I'd like to invite you to Spain for holiday.
4.I'd like to invite you to Spain for your holiday.
5.I'd like to invite you to Spain for the holidays.
5. I'd like to invite you to Spain on holiday [probably wrong]
We say "How do you usually spend holiday?" or "How do you usually spend the holidays" or "How do you usually spend your holidays?" Or maybe all of them are correct?

Thank you :)
And what about:
How do you usually spend the holiday?
I'd like to invite to you to Spain for the holiday.
What is the rule here? What's the rule with the word "holiday" or "holidays"?
I've checked in the dictionary. I've found that:
We use "holiday" without a,the,my, etc. in such expressions: be on holiday, go on holiday, return/come back from holiday (or go on your holidays, be on your holidays).
"Holidays" is usually used after the, my, your etc.
1. They are going to Spain for their holidays.
2. He is going to Spain for his holiday.
Are the above sentences correct?
I would like to ask about the expression "the holiday of a lifetime"
I know that this sentences are correct:
It was the holiday of a lifetime.
Come to Spain and have the holiday of a lifetime!
But can you "spend the holiday of a lifetime"?
You will spend the holiday of a lifetime in Spain!
