Are there too many holidays throughout the year?

When you think about how many days a year you work or go to school, do you factor in the holidays? Have you ever thought of the holidays in a sense that there are two many or too few? There are different holidays for different parts of the world, and different religions, for example, Easter Monday is a holiday for government jobs and schools but, banks are open on Monday. Everything else is closed, banks are closed on Christmas day, and New Year’s day. There are many holidays in the year but are there too many? Some people don’t think that there are enough holidays and others think that there are too many. Why is that? It depends on who you ask, some people work on holidays depending on their jobs. What do you think of working on a holiday when everyone else is off and able to spend time with their family? It seems as though there are limitless amounts of holidays but are there really?

So what is the answer are there too many holidays in a year or not enough? At least once a month there is a holiday or every other month. At least once a month school children, get a day off and why is that? It is in the curriculum so that is why they have a P.A. Day every month. But that is not a holiday, there is only a holiday at least every other month, or so. There are days that should be holidays and the stores and things are still open do you think that is right? Everyone deserves to spend time with their families on holidays, don’t you think?

It depends on who you ask if you ask someone who is in school they would say there aren't enough holidays, but if you ask someone who works at a very busy job they might say something different. Even still, why would some government, businesses be closed but things like road work still be going on, on a holiday? Well, it depends on what type of road work if a company is behind then they will either work weekends or holidays because the job needs to be done. Or they will get one of the two holidays off, for example during Easter they will get Good Friday off but have to work Easter Monday. It all has to deal with money.

Some people feel that having a holiday once a month is too much because of the amount of work that they have to do, but most of the time who are those people? Are they the workaholics or the people who don’t have families? If you ask me, I don’t think that there are too many holidays in a year. I think that there are just enough. We have gotten a random holiday over the years and that was Family Day. Which I blogged about previously. The holidays that we have are just enough because everyone needs to spend time with family at least once a month. If you don’t spend time with family once a month you are going to lose, the sense of it and forget what family is all about. I think that is the point of having holidays? What do you think?

Holiday, Holiday, Holiday

Every once in a while people need to be reminded of what life is all about. It is not all about work, it is about living life too, and that is what the holidays show if you look deep enough. Holidays are a time to relax and spend time with family and who doesn’t like to do that every once in a while. Do you have a favorite holiday? Most people have a favorite holiday mine is Labour Day weekend, whether I am staying home or not, I just love that holiday more than any other. I love Labour Day weekend because it is the first official sign that summer is right around the corner and who doesn’t like summer?

Do you find that there are too many holidays in a year, or do you agree with me and say that there aren’t? There are just enough holidays in a year for my liking. Do you find that a number of holidays that people have to work, should change or do think that it is okay the way the holidays are laid out? Again, it depends on who you ask, specific stores are open on holidays and that is weird but some people have to go and do their shopping on holidays because that is the only time they have. What do you think of the people that have to work on holidays? I praise the people that work on holidays because they are missing out on spending time with their families so others can, that is a sacrifice that not many people will take.

Why are there holidays in the world? This is my opinion, I think that there are holidays in the world because you can’t work all the time. People need a break or they will burn themselves out. The reason there are holidays at least once a month is so that people can spend time with their families and not burn themselves out. Everyone needs to relax at some point in their lives and isn’t that what holidays are for? Are there not enough holidays in the world What do you think?

When a holiday comes around do you feel like it is limitless in a sense of how long it is or does it go by too fast for you? How many holidays do you think there should be, is there too many or do you think that there is just enough? in my opinion, we have enough holidays the reason why is because they feel limitlessly long and busy when they come about, so if we had more we would go probably all go crazy with the busyness and we do that enough already don't you think? Holidays are meant for us to relax but we still need to work in order to live so there are just enough holidays when you think about it.

      I think it depends highly on if a holiday is a national one or a religious one. Religious holidays don't require businesses to close, but by law in many states, a person is allowed time off for their religious holidays.

      National or government holidays are events in which government offices close and so usually businesses will follow suit.
