2017 Public Holidays

2017 is going to be a great year for travelling because there are fewer working days this year.  In the USA, if a public holiday falls on a Saturday then you get Friday off.  If it falls on a Sunday then you get Monday off.  So it doesn't matter when the holiday falls you are guaranteed a day off.

Over here in Czechland, if a public holiday falls on a weekend then it doesn't matter.  You are already off so you lose an extra day off.

With the way the holidays fall this year, there are only 250 working days with six long weekends.  Yippee!!  Now to start combining public holidays with some vacation days to maximise time off.
