    Default Went on vacation or on holiday?

    ¿Es correcto decirlo de las dos formas? o ¿Cuando se usa una u otra?

    Entiendo que vacation se refiere a las vacaciones propiamente dichas, a diferencia de on holiday que corresponde a los feriados o días festivos. ¿Es correcto?
    A mi me nació otra duda, ¿holiday o holidays?

    Hasta donde yo se, tiene que ver con la diferencia entre EE.UU Y GRAN BRETAÑA
    VACATION AMERICAN E.
    HOLIDAY BRITISH E.

    I believe a holiday is referred to an event that is celebrating something i.e Christmas, Easter, Labor day ext.

    A vacation is time taken away from work, school, or whatever it is that consists of your normal daily activity.

    Entonces holiday aplica para feriados y también para vacaciones. Recuerdo el título de la película "The Holiday" en donde las protagonistas Kate Winslety Cameron Diaz intercambiaban casas casualemente una en Los Angeles y la otra en Inglaterra.
    ¿Particularidades del cine?

    Thank you chris.r for clearing that up for me. I went on vacation would be the correct option. I am speaking as an American. Perhaps across the pond they do use the word holiday when we would use vacation.
