    In this thread I posed the question to people from the US.

    How about every one else? Do you say holiday or vacation? Let us know where you are from too.

    We use the word "holiday" more commonly than "vacation".

    holiday is a special date, while vacations is off from work for at least a week. Those are my definitions

    Please say where you are from. It's clear that US Americans say vacation and the Brits say holiday.

    How about the Aussies? Indians? and other countries where English is widely spoken?

    In our country
    Holiday means 1 or 2 days business/school off.
    Vacation means many days off - ranging from weeks to month..

    Both are similar but not same.
    I think Holiday has 3-4 days off and vacation has a week to month plans.
    Also, I think, vacation means, going far place off while holidays you just hang around, not that far.

    In Australia holiday does not just mean "a few days off" or a public holiday, it has the same meaning as vacation.

    We always love vacations when we are in school or colleges...


    But now in work it's very difficult to get a vacation...
