Well, in that case you probably live somewhere where the 2nd is a holiday.

Alas, it was on Sunday this year!

Re: Yay, tomorrows another holiday!

As this thread came up, can someone tell me exactly which table here is supposed to be days off?

http://www.ne.ch/neat/site/jsp/rubri...leu&DocId=7148

I find it very weird to be only 7 days per year....even easter monday is not vacation in the first table.

OK, Here we get:

1 January
6 January (Epiphany)
19 March (Father's Day)
(variable) Easter Monday
1 May (Labor Day)
(variable) Ascension Thursday
(variable) Pentecost Monday
(variable) Corpus Domini (Thursday, 10 days after Pentecost Monday)
29 June (Sts Peter and Paul)
1 August (neice's birthday, plus Swiss day)
15 August (stairway to heaven)
1 November (day after Holoween)
8 December (day Mary gets knocked up)
25 December
26 December (ST. Steven)

So, 15, but some are on weekends!

Tom

P.S. This year it really sucked, as 1/15 August, and 25/26 December were on the weekend, can't recall the others.

Re: Yay, tomorrows another holiday!

Epiphany is a Catholic holiday, if you work in a Protestant Canton you go to work tomorrow.

Southern Germany also has a holiday so expect plenty of shopping tourists tomorrow in Basel and St Gallen, and full autobahn traffic going north, after the winter holidays.

Every one knows the Ticinoise get better weather, and better sex, but they are lower paid and also have to pay the mafia everytime they use the public car park. So don't be too upset by his gloating.

@ Mowvich, you missed a few,

Re: Yay, tomorrows another holiday!

All these holidays make things a bit tricky working in a school ... have to consult the calendar whenever I start a theme, to ensure I have enough consecutive unbroken weeks to get momentum up!

OK, Here we get:

1 August (neice's birthday, plus Swiss day)
Your niece is born on the best day of the year for a birthday! The most talented, attractive and intelligent people are born on that day - and you know what? Their other features are only exceeded by their modesty!

btw, I'm still bitter about New South Wales (in Australia) being bullied by the other states to move Wattle Day from 1 August to 1 September ... just because the other states don't have a variety of wattle that starts blooming at the start of August!!

Don't bet on THAT (i.e. I didn't move to TI just for the better lifestyle)!

Hmmm, I guess you've never been to Zurich, where parking costs 3-4X what it does in Lugano!
