  1. They made their wishes watching the sunrise.
  2. They made their wishes watching sunrise.

Which one is correct? Do we have to put 'the' before 'sunrise' or not?

  • Do you mean "They made their wishes (come true) watching the sunrise."? We usually don't "make wishes" in this manner. – user3169 Oct 31 '18 at 4:58
