We All Deserve a Christmas Vacation

I’ve spent the last two days recovering from the holiday hubbub. I’m so glad that I have had the chance to just kick back and relax after all of the Christmas visiting, parties, and holiday functions.

I so needed that.

I think everyone should get a week off for Christmas. I remember that as a kid, the stores were always closed on Sundays. Boxing Day was a holiday and if you wanted to get some deals in the stores you had to wait until the 27th for “commercial boxing day.”

I’d like to go back to those days.

We can survive a week without having to buy anything, can’t we?

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just spend that time with our family and friends?

Christmas Day until New Year’s Day should be a holiday week.

If we all had a week off, we could spread out the holiday cheer instead of having to cram it all into two incredibly short days.

I could have one full day at my dad’s place. Follow that up with another full day at my mom’s. I could spend one day at my brother’s place. We could all have one evening free for our company banquets. We could go skating or toboganning.

Wouldn’t that be great?
