- It’s a public/national/bank holiday on Friday, so all the banks will be closed. (星期五是國定假日，所有銀行都不營業)
- Sandy seems very tired. He needs a holiday. (桑迪似乎非常疲勞。他需要休個假)
在表示假期、休假、度假的意思時，複數名詞 holidays 和 holiday 的用法並無二致。例如：
- We have decided where we’re going for our holiday(s) this year. (我們已決定今年要到哪裡度假了)
- We are all going to Europe for our holiday this year. (我們今年都要去歐洲度假)
= We are all going to Europe for our holidays this year.
