"I hope you enjoyed your holidays." vs "I hope you had a great holidays."

The first sentence is correct. The second sentence is incorrect because the singular article “a” cannot be used with the plural word “holidays”.

Last Updated: June 17, 2022

The phrase “I hope you enjoyed your holidays” is used to tell someone you hope they had a good time during a break from work or a celebration that spans several days.

I hope you had a great holidays.

This is not correct. Don't use this phrase.

The article “a” can only be used with a singular form of a word, so it cannot be used with “holidays”.
