Interesting that a number of people are taking holidays over the summer; and even some European businesses close up shop for a week or two.

So my question is;
Who is taking some holidays.
Is there a specific time for a European company to close up shop.

In Australia many firms have 2 weeks from Christmas day; but in Europe there is no one specific day that I could pinpoint whether someone would start their summer vacation.

Well being winter in the southern hemisphere I got to wait 5 months for my summer holidays. I am taking 1 week winter holiday in August to go snowboarding.


Why fly non stop when you can connect

Here in Denmark the industries usually closes during week 27-30 because there is nothingt to do anyway. SO the employees are sent on vacation.

In Switzerland the students have 5 week summer holiday.
During the school holidays some companies will close for 3 weeks.

In the past more companies were closed during the summer holidays as now a days.



Simle at the world and the world smiles back :)
