I live in England and we only have xmas day, Boxing day, New years day and all of the bank holiday Mondays off.

You have to put a holiday in if you want any other day off work.
skinheadonthembta
Yeah, same here. Unless of course I am at work on those days except Christmas Day (zoo's not open on Xmas), in which case I get double pay - and since i never do anything on bank holidays anyway, it's a really easy way to get 40 quid! (I only work 4 hours a day)

The only thing we have that other countries don't is Sinterklaas. I live in the Netherlands.

I'm from Maine, USA and, well, these are some of my most favored holidays...I can hardly wait for each one every year!

National Nothing Day (January 16), created by a journalist to give people one day when they can just sit, "without celebrating, observing, or honoring anything."

National Kazoo Day (January 28), a day to appreciate that handy musical instrument.

Get a Different Name Day (February 13), for those with boring names.

National Honesty Day (April 30), when "Honest Abe" Awards (named for President Abraham Lincoln) are presented to honest people and honest companies.

Yell "Fudge" at the Cobras in North America Day (June 2), because -- according to the holiday's sponsors -- the word fudge makes cobra snakes gag and slither away.

Hug Holiday (June 15 to 22), to show appreciation of others in any way you can, but especially with a simple hug.

Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day (July 27), because your houseplants will become healthier from knowing their environment.

National Mustard Day (August 5), a day when mustard lovers can slather their favorite spread on everything, pretzels and ice cream included.

Middle Children's Day (August 13), to salute kids born between brothers and sisters.

World Hello Day (November 21), a day set aside to advance peace by saying hello to at least ten people you meet that day.

Underdog Day (December 16), honors all the underdogs and unsung heroes who give so much to people.

National Whiner's Day (December 26), dedicated to those who complain endlessly as they return holiday gifts in crowded stores.

Noon Year's Eve (December 31), celebrated in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for early risers who have difficulty staying awake until midnight on New Year's Eve.

Thanks to this website for having my favorite holidays!!! http://www.education-world.com/a_lesson/lesson018.shtml
