    in my next holiday

    Hi,

    I know you say be/go on holiday/vacation. But which preposition is correct if I want to express the following:

    In my next holiday I'd like to learn how to dive. Is IN possible here? Or would you still say ON?

    Thank you!

    Not in AmE. "On my next vacation" or "during my next vacation" are possible.
