The difference between 'live' and 'stay'

Do you know the difference between 'live' and 'stay'? If not, then read on.

If you live in a place, you occupy a house, carry on your daily activities from year 1 you were there until now. In other words, 'to live in a place' is to settle down in a place for a long time.

As for 'stay' it means put up in a place for a short time. Hence, when you go to your relative's house outstation, you will be put up there for a few days. In this case, we can say that you will stay there for several days.

So much for the difference in meaning between 'live' and 'stay'.

Happy living in your present house permanently and happy staying in your relative's house for a few days.
