    meet during our holiday

    Should I say '' We could meet during our holiday'' or''............during our holidays''? Is the first sentence gramatically incorrect?

    Re: meet during our holiday

    In BrE, "during our holiday" means "at some point during the time that we are away from home on a leisure trip (what would be called a vacation in AmE)". "During our holidays" could mean "at some point during the time that I don't have to be at work" (an example might be someone whose company shuts down for two weeks over Christmas so that person might have two weeks at home with their family, and they might refer to that period of time as "holidays".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
