Dear A.S.S. Editor
The Public Holidays for 2018 was just released yesterday. Makes me wonder why they, whoever the public holidays committee are, decided to release the dates so early. It’s only the first week of April, and we are already given the holidays for 2018.
Some say it would be good for planning, be it a weekend getaway, or family holidays. Some also say with the release of the public holidays, work schedules can also be planned accordingly. All true, have their merits, but seriously, you need 8 months to plan for next year? It seems like the release of public holiday dates are getting earlier and earlier. Maybe next year, they will release the 2019 holidays by February.
And some media outlets already giving you plans on how to take extended long weekends, if you play with the days of the public holidays that does not fall near a weekend. Now, if everyone decides to take a long weekend, then really, no one wants to work on that day. Might as well make all holidays a long weekend.
