The Long List Of LONG WEEKENDS In 2017 – Happy New Year!

2016 might have been one of the worst years ever, and no we’re not just talking about Trump becoming President or standing in never-ending ATM queues. Every single holiday somehow managed to land on a Sunday – basically making long weekends a thing of our dreams. But do not despair – 2017 is here and it holds far greater promise – in the latter’s regard at least. Most holidays find themselves strategically placed on Fridays or Mondays. So we took it upon ourselves to list our every single long weekend in 2017, and then some, that you can start making excuses for.

So send in those emails to your boss before anyone else does and get planning!
