Should we have more bank/public holidays ?? Here in the UK, we get 2 days off in December, we get Good Friday/Easter Monday, then the Spring Holiday, the The August bank holiday, and that is it.

I think that we should have another couple of bank holidays.. it always seems ages from the Spring Bank holiday to the one in August, and also then from August to Christmas is also ages away.
I would love to see a bank holiday in July, and also one in October, and while I am at it why not one in February !

There should be one every two months at least to encourage people to relax, recharge their batteries, and become, ahem!, more motivated to work!!!!  



Seriously though, we should, we are a very long way behind most places in Europe, AND Scotland get far more Bank Holidays than England does too... > >

Bang on Maxine, I would say that after a public holiday, it does make you feel better. Plus, it gives you somthing to look forward to.
The only shame, is for those that still have to work.... I think that all of the shops should also be closed, or at least only be open for a maximum of 4 hours...

Spreading them out across the year makes sense. Alternatively, we could bring Xmas forward.....

In Amsterdam there was a bank holiday for Whitsun. In Guernsey there is a Bank Holiday on May 9, our Liberation Day.

May is great because there are hardly any Mondays to work! But more Bank Hols would be good.

Holidays won`t be allowed for the whole of December where I work... I`ll be working Christmas Day and Boxing Day from 9am to 1pm.

That means I`ve to take the kids to my mums at 8am,or get someone to come and sit with them until I get home.
