Since kids aren’t a factor, I’d personally choose February/March and take a trip somewhere warm. It’s a lot cheaper in most places because it’s not peak vacation season, too.

pussinboots83 :  I’d probably do Feb/March as well. I HATE having to venture out to the office when it’s snowing. Even if I didn’t take a trip I’d stay wrapped up in a blanket with my coffee, my puppy, and netflix.

Feb/March – it’s cheaper in most places since it’s after Christmas but before Spring break.

Christmas is my favorite time, so it would be my choice. I would be pissed if I couldn’t get enough time off for it to really feel like Christmas and I could have had two weeks. 

And then I would do a week to escape the snow a bit, and a week in the summer to enjoy the sun a bit.

In an ideal world, right?!

pussinboots83 :  I hate the years when I don’t get into the Christmas spirit soon enough, and it feels like it passes just as any other day. So I really plan my December and beginning of Jan around Christmas Fairs, roasted chestnuts, decorating asap, etc. It’s my thing. And then I love being in a relaxed state to welcome in the New Year. It at least helps one to be optimistic before you know the first week of Jan, when the whole thing blows up in smoke.

I get two weeks off from work during Xmas and New Years every year and love it.  It’s just a nice way to end the year and relax before the new year.

pussinboots83 :  Just a fair warning, at least where I am, prices tend to go up around the middle of February and then higher again at the beginning of March. Early February is probably best if you’re looking to avoid spring break prices for a vacation.

I always need a break of the cold & snowy short daylight winter by mid march.  If I don’t break the winter up with a week in the sun somewhere it hurts my well being.
