Long Weekends

In my previous job, the company observed seven (or sometimes six) days of public holidays. This was one less than I had in the UK. This year, my new employer has extended the number to ten. The first of these extra holidays is MLK Day; next Monday, January 20th. We are using the resultant long weekend to rent a cabin at Lake Tahoe and do some skiing.

The second of the extra days is not even a month later. It is Presidents’ Day. Even when I had to work it was one of my favorite minor holidays, as I would receive a Presidential biography as a gift. The Friday of the weekend is Valentine’s Day, so I am taking a day of vacation to give us an extra long weekend. We are flying out to Vegas for a weekend of fine dining, relaxation, and taking in a show.

There is then a long drought until the next long weekend; which is Memorial Day at the end of May.
