My company is implementing a policy where certain individuals have to take two weeks straight off work (the reasons for this are dumb and boring) I have four weeks total so this is half of my total vacation time and I am torn as to when to take it.
Late February/ Early March – middle of winter. I can spend two weeks avoiding the cold and snow
July/August – awesome summer days that I can spend at the beach or even just in my backyard
November/December – either around Christmas or Thanksgiving . it would be nice to have that time to focus on family and decorating to my little heart’s desire.
yes, I know this is a terrible problem to have. Which time would you choose? Or would you choose another time I am not thinking of?
there are no kids in this equation just me and DH.

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.

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.

I am heavily leaning towards Feb/March like a PP said even if I don’t go anywhere not going into the office in the dead of winter is nice

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?!

damn that’s a good point of view. I do love Christmas…..

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.

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.
