When traveling for vacations, it seemed like a good idea to take advantage of the "extra day" that a holiday provided to extend a long weekend into a "short vacation".
Since we do not have as many vacation days in the USA as many other countries enjoy, this holiday extension helps to maximize our total number of days.
Also, a few times I found that there was not much keeping me from leaving town (no social gatherings, for example) so that made the decision easier to start planning vacations around long holiday weekends (such as traveling to Amsterdam last Thanksgiving weekend for a yoga and writing workshop plus an Ayurveda consultation plus a few yoga classes).
I then realized that lots of other people feel the same way about extending holiday weekends and that these intermittent holidays throughout the year were a great opportunity to plan retreats.
