However you choose to spend your day, make it count.

I chose to spend my day by myself – and it was perfect 🙂 Hope you had a good one!
Glad you had a good one, mine was memorable.
Hopefully in a good way…
Overall, yes 😉
I like the restful Feriertage here, the chance for peace and quiet. It gets some getting used to, just like the Germans all piling into the mixed sauna, all together in the altogether, I suppose. 🙂
All our neighbours went visiting family for 4 days, it was lovely and quiet. So different to a DIY bank holiday in the UK.
It’s so nice to have that down-time, I find.
I think the Germans are generally more family-orientated than the Brits. Work-life balance here is better. Long may it be so!
More family oriented? not sure but I’m a Northerner, I’m sure it differs vastly further down the country. Work life balance before having kids, I’d totally agree. After? as far as I can see it’s less so, but I don’t have any kids so what do I know 😉
I’m a pads brat-cum-Teessider. I agree, southerners are a bit more work-focussed in the UK. (Dad is from t’Dales, mum from Saltburn.) This is probably because they have to be in order to pay the mortgage. Northerners tend to be more freetime and weekend-orientated and generally less careerist.
Meiner Meinung nach.
