HOWYA FERGUS ME BOY!!!!!
Explanation:
With a name like Fergus...you HAVE to be Irish right?

Fergus, the correct answer to your question is "vacaciones".

NOW TO BE FAIR, YOU MUST SELECT THE RIGHT ANSWER--IN THE ORDER YOU GOT THEM. THAT MEANS (from what I can see anyway) THAT THE POINTS SHOULD GO TO:
"OSO" WHO WAS THE FIRST ONE TO ANSWER YOU CORRECTLY. I JUST HOPE YOU KEEP YOUR END OF THE BARGAIN!

Slán agus Beannacht!

Eres britànico o estadounidense?


Explanation:
Si eres británico se trata de un período de vacaciones...un estadounidense diría "vacation"!

Si eres estadounidense y lo dices adrede...te refieres a un día de fiesta en particular, más bien un PUENTE.

Puente o vacaciones?

No te arriesgues y pon vacaciones... o lo que quieras :))

Suerte, Flavio
