    Re: holiday

    To sum up, the possible correct options are:

    I'd like to invite you to Spain for your holidays.

    I'd like to invite you to Spain for your holiday.
    I'd like to invite you to Spain for the holidays.


    Can I add "I'd like to invite you to Spain for the holiday" to this list?

    Unless the person is talking about a specific holiday (vacation) and the listener knows what holiday, then no, it's not natural.

    I'd like to invite you to come to Spain on holiday.
    I'd like to invite you to Spain for a holiday.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
