  • Each and every are singular, but all is plural. Some, any, and none can be either, depending. – John Lawler Dec 17 '18 at 16:42

It´s "wishes", since it is in third person (Everyone), so the correct way to say it is: Everyone here at xyz wishes you a happy holiday.

-es2
SUFFIX
1 Forming the third person singular of the present tense in verbs ending in sibilant sounds.
‘pushes’
2 Forming the third person singular of the present tense in verbs ending in -o (but not -oo) ‘goes’

So either way with the subject being "everyone" it is only correct to use "wishes" (verb)

  • Good job for adding a source, but the quote is not very legible. Try using "> " and looking at the preview at the bottom of the page before posting. ;) – A Lambent Eye Dec 17 '18 at 15:43

It should be either

Everyone (here at ...) wishes you [...]

since "everyone" is 3rd person singular, or

We (at ...) wish you [...]

since "we" is 1st person plural.

    Not sure why this answer was down-voted. Perhaps the “1nd”. Change it to 1st and perhaps you’ll have better luck. – David Dec 17 '18 at 19:53
  • @David Not sure here either, but thanks for pointing it out! – A Lambent Eye Dec 17 '18 at 19:55
