Hurray, Hurray, it's a holi-holi holiday...

A long weekend is loved and welcomed by many. Who doesn't love a long weekend, right? It also brings on a shorter work week. Here in Cayman it seems like we have quite a few and when you add it all up, Cayman has an extra statutory (public) holiday than Bermuda and Canada does. The downside is that from the months of August to October, Cayman does not have a long weekend scheduled in at all. But everything in moderation, right? This year we also get an extra day in May for Election Day! And this Monday Cayman will be celebrating National Heroes Day. Seems like a parade will be in order and you can bet I will be around for that. So, stay tuned.

Go HERE for a list of Cayman's Public Holidays for 2009.

That's an interesting spread of holidays. First time that I've seen Ash Wednesday as a full-out holiday, which is interesting.

But yeah, that long stretch from July to November without a break sucks.
