holidays and was/were

I’m not sure, but I think this sentence has a mistake: This certainly was my perfect holidays ever.
it should be: These certainly were my perfect holidays ever.
Thanks or your explantion, you’re all very helpful. :wink:

Yes, you are right.

Probably, one would say, These certainly were my most perfect holidays ever.

The reason is that you are comparing these holidays to all the other holidays that you have experienced in your life. Adding the “most” is saying that these were the closest to perfect in that comparison. Another likely wording would be, “These were the best holidays for me, ever.”
