Why is it hubo fuegos artificiales when fireworks is plural? Why would it not be hubieron fuegos artificiales?
Freeform Writing Exercise B2
As David said, the forms there is, there are, there was, there were, there will be, there has been, etc use in Spanish the singular form in each tense, not the plural. Here is a specific lesson on "hubo" where you'll see lots of examples. I hope it helps. Saludos
Hi there Rich ... "Hubo" is the preterite form of "hay" [which means "there are..." and "there is..."] > In this context there is no plural form; i.e. it is always in the singular - (just like the French "il y a ...", and the German "es gibt ...").
