Hi teachers,

Recently the 5th United Nations Day of Vesak was held in my country . I saw many placards and banners saying " Welcome to the 5th United Nations Day of Vesak " , but I think it should read " Welcome the 5th United Nations Day of Vesak ". Somebody says Iam right somebody says I am wrong . So please help clarify whether I am wrong or right.

Thank you in advanve

And the Whos down in Whoville sang,

"Welcome Christmas
Fah who rah-moose!
Welcome Christmas
Dah who dah-moose!"

They were welcoming the arrival of Chrismas.

The sign at the entrance to the town would have read "Welcome to the Whoville Christmas celebration. No grinches allowed."

Hi,

Somebody says Iam right somebody says I am wrong . So please help clarify whether I am wrong or right.

Let me offer simpler examples.

If a sign says 'Welcome Tom', it means that Tom is coming to the place and he is welcome there.

If a sign says 'Welcome to the zoo', it means that anyone who visits the zoo will be welcome there, welcome to participate in all the acivities that happen

If this does not help you with your question, please post again.

Best wishes, Clive

Thank you Clive and Grammar Geek,

So if we say " welcome to the 5th UN Day of Vesak " that means we welcome people from other countries who come to attend the Day of Vesak , and if we say " welcome the 5th UN Day of Vesak ",that means we welcome the arrival of the Day of Vesak . Is that right ?

Best wishes
