You've gotta love the French!
Jackson came home yesterday to announce that since he didn't have a holiday this week that there were two next!
The French enjoy 11 national jours feriés each year. During May, there is a holiday nearly every week (except this week, whereas next Thursday's holiday is followed by: "You shouldn't come into the office next Friday since Thursday is a holiday and no one will be here Friday either!"
By law, every French citizen is entitled to 5 weeks of paid vacation. This is even better than Canada!
