Let’ s assume I’m in the bakery and I said something like that: “Today we celebrate Fat Thursday in Poland. I’m sure many Polish people will come up/show up/ come by/ another verb.(?)”
I have no idea which verb fits here.
Can I use “show up” when somebody appears unexpectedly? I was told it is used when you were invited to a wedding or a meeting etc.
My American friend advised me to use:
to come by or to stop by = => intent
to show up = to appear, as if by invitation or coincidence
My mom just showed up at my door! What a surprise!
My mom came by today to give me a cake.
