I don't mean to be rude, but if English is not your first language, this may help to clarify things. The word you wrote "holydays" and the word you meant holidays are very close in meaning and usage. The word you meant, "holidays", commonly means any secular reason for taking a day or days off work.

"Remember Remember the 5th of November
The gunpowder treason and plot..."
(Guy Fawkes day in the UK)

or

"I have a dream..."
(MLK Birthday in the US - Jan 15th)

Holy Days(two words) are religious festivals.
Christmas, Yom Kippur, Ramadan etc..

It's a really picky point but how are you ever going to learn if nobody points these things out.

As always I'm the awkward Adminstrator, but Bonfore Night (5th November) is not officially classed as a holiday, we just celebrate it by lighting big bonfires and firework displays. Believe me I would love it if we got a day off!! A good example from the UK is the good ol' Bank Holidays.

And I'll stop being an awkward so-and-so!

I can't take any more of this -- :)
Ah ok, I got the face word (faccia) and piu as more but making it make sense was beyond my feeble linguistic skills.

Yes, I can't take any more of this, hence why I said "Possiamo comunichiamo l'inglese preferibilmente" ("Can we talk in English" - so I'm led to believe :rolleyes: ).

I think papabravo wanted to say something like "Loose your face more". Not a very good advice, in my opinion. :D:D:D
