countable or uncountable?
 
Please! Is the word "congratulations" countable or uncountable?
It īs quite urgent.
Thanks

Hello,

I looked up the word and found out that this is an exclamation & plural noun (Cambridge).
I hope you īll find this useful.

I wish you a nice evening.

Thanks a lot. So, can I say - 3 congratulations?
And is it possible to say ONE CONGRATULATION?

I need to see the word in a sentence.

You can say:
We have three congratulations today -
but also  three congratulations are in order.

I can īt think of a sentence with one congratulations - what īs wrong with A congratulation?
