So here it is, "Boxing Day" and I'm sitting at my office nook, drinking tea and writing up field notes from my visits last week.
Though there are a lot of festivals and holidays that we get off you never get a chunk of days off unless you take them. E.G. For Diwali (festival of lights in Nov/Dec), we had Tuesday and Friday off. Not Thursday and Friday, so we could have a 4 day weekend. Not Friday and Monday so we had two 4 day weeks. Nope Tuesday and Friday, and what can you do when you have a Tuesday off? At this point I'm strongly considering taking Friday and next Monday as personal days so I can have a breather.
