OK, hear me out.
Currently the bank holidays look like this:
Now while April / May are pretty fucking amazing, it does mean that there are big chunks of the year which are just fucked, and by the end of May you start to think “Maybe the 4 day week is a good lifestyle after all”, only to have it pulled away from under you.
But maybe it’s just me who thinks this, and you lot think this is a good thing. Well?
- I like the current bank holiday schedule
- I think the bank holiday schedule needs to change
I’m not suggesting that we get more or less, I’m happy to stick with 8 for the sake of argument, but if we do have 8, here is my proposal:
|01-Jan||Friday||New Year’s Day|
|23-Mar||Monday||Day of the Sea (Bolivia)|
|03-May||Monday||Constitution Day (Poland)|
|22-Jun||Monday||Anti-Fascist Struggle Day (Croatia)|
|30-Aug||Monday||Constitution Day (Kazakhstan)|
|03-Nov||Monday||Flag Day (United Arab Emirates)|
|27-Dec||Monday||Christmas Day (substitute day)|
This way, they’re spread out through the year, and we celebrate things that aren’t just linked to religious celebrations, such as Carnival, the festival of getting wrecked up in fancy dress.
