    Hello :)

    How could I say
    'I like holidays because they are different from the norm' ​
    in French? Would it be
    'J'aime les vacances car ils sont different de la normal' ​
    I think thats wrong though, but Im not sure.

    Any help would be appreciated,

    Since "vacances" is feminine" you must say "ELLES SONT différentes de la norme."

    Correct, but I'd prefer to say "car elles diffèrent de la normale".
