do you vacation or do you holiday?

  1. hol·i·day  

    /ˈhäliˌdā/
    Noun
    A day of festivity or recreation when no work is done.

    va·ca·tion  

    /vāˈkāSHən/
    Noun
    An extended period of recreation, esp. one spent away from home or in traveling.

    I wondered what the difference between a holiday and a vacation was. Since both are actually synonyms for each other, there's little difference.. a minor technicality on the wording of a sentence, really, although one suggests a singular day of recreating while the other suggests a lengthy duration, and one suggests that it can be done at home, while the other is away from home. So, whether you are taking in a holiday, or going away on a vacation, I hope you get some time for recreation this summer. In a little while, I'll be having my vacation. I won't say when or where, but rest assured, it will be full of adventure, relaxation, exploration, beauty, connection, peace, excitement, contentment, companionship and probably so much more.

Well your dictionary definitions don't take geographical language differences in to account!!
Whatever you are calling it though, if you go away and are able to tick each of the things on that list then you will have a great one!!

Enjoy!
