    Be or was

    In the following sentence, should I use BE or Was? Thanks very much.
    We all have recently taken some time off from work, whether it be (was) a longer vacation or just short break of a day or two.

    hi cleung. i'm pretty sure that you should use 'was' but i also think that 'is' is right.
    so your sentence might be:
    We all have recently taken some time off from work, whether it is/was a longer vacation or just short break of a day or two.
    if i were you, I'd use 'is'. But it also depends on the context.
