    Lost Lots of thanks. Note that we say "Many thanks" or just "Thanks".
    Your second sentence is correct. However, note that "peak season" is a specific usage to do with holidays/vacations. Later in the sentence, when you used "the season", I immediately thought about spring, summer, autumn and winter. I would probably just say "Peak season is when most people go on holiday".

    Edit: I wish I'd seen the "thread closed to save our members' time" post before I spent time writing this one! Thanks though, Rover.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
