    Cool Holidays

    Hello!

    Is the use of the plural form correct in this case, please? :

    "I'm on holiday in August. That's the only holidays I have during the year. "
    Thank you very much for your help

    Will

    In BrE, at least, it would be "I'm (or I'll be) on holiday in August. That's the only holiday I have booked this year."

    Re: Holidays

    In AmE, just substitute "vacation" (singular) for "holiday(s)" in both sentences.
