Public holidays: the technique to have 64 days of vacation in 2023


In 2023, the workers draw the jackpot, like in the lottery. Next year’s calendar announces the possibility of several long weekends. Unlike 2022, where many public holidays fell on Saturday or Sunday. To breathe a little, the following year will be perfect.

By asking 25 days of paid leave, it will be possible to take advantage of two months of vacation in reality. On the other hand, it is necessary to plan the blow quickly! At the risk of seeing your colleagues beat you to the post…

The trick is very simple, just take advantage of weekends extended by public holidays to organize good weeks of rest.

It all starts with Easter Monday. The latter will fall on April 10 and will therefore be a holiday. It is enough to take four days off, from Tuesday to Friday to obtain nine days of rest, from the 8th to the 16th.

Then comes the turn of May. Labor Day on the 1st, Armistice on the 8th, Ascension on the 18th and Pentecost on the 29th. You will be able, in exchange for six days off, to be on vacation, all the same for 18 days. How ? By asking four days from Tuesday 2 to Friday 5 and two days on Friday 19 and 26 May.

The same goes for July where by sacrificing four days off, from the 10th to the 13th inclusive, you will get nine days off. In August, it’s the same thing, but with Assumption Tuesday…

Then, in November, there are two options: ask two days for five days of vacation, Saturday October 28 to November 1 or four days, to obtain nine days, from Saturday October 28 to Friday November 5.

Finally, in December, Christmas falls on a Monday… Thanks to four days off, you will have 10 days without working.
