    EACH in general statements

    Hello,
    I wonder if smb could explain
    Is it possible to use EACH (along with EVERY) in general statements,eg
    Each year we go to Turkey for our holiday.
    Actually, Sheena kindly gave plenty of info on each vs every some time ago, but this point remained obscure.
    Tnx

    .
    Yes, you can. Each focuses on the individual more than does every, that is all.
