holiday & vacation

Unread post by sarina » Thu Feb 01, 2007 9:59 am

Dear colleagues,

As far as I know "vacation" is used instead of "holiday" in American English. Am I right? If so, what is the use of "holiday" in American English; in what occasions is it used?
I would be grateful if you help me.

Regars,
Sarina

Dear dania,

Thanks a lot for the reply; it was a great help. But I still wonder whether the use of the two words
differs in British and American English or not.
