Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
All I know is a holiday normally means the missus has me doing chores around the house. It's nice to go back to work for a rest.
I think I may be a couple of decades late with this kind of talk, but it was visionary, wasn't it?! Lots of people have naff jobs and feel overworked and underpaid with too much stress and not enough holiday. Imagine the government agreeing with you and fighting your quarter against your idiot of a boss. (Well, theoretically at any rate).
I must admit that I miss the maypole dances etc. which you get with May Day and not with Labour Day!
