Surely, Kat.

BTW, "this coming Sunday" is much better than "the following week". It is clearer and more specific. I can learn from the interaction with you on the forum. It's great! :D :D

Glad to hear that. :D

Most often "next week" is used if you are talking about the whole coming week or a week from today (so it can fall on any day of the week). "The following week" is used when a starting day in the past or future is clear.

Here's a better way to use "following":

"Our next meeting will be on Dec. 19. Then we will be off for the holidays the following week and resume two weeks after that."

Thanks for the elucidation. Now I have a better understanding of it. :ssmile:
