4 Long Weekends

THIS IS MAY in France. Of the 5 weekends in May, four of them have included a holiday on Friday or Monday (OK, one was Thursday -- but most people just took off the Friday as wel.) It's hard to complain about life in France in May (unless, of course, you're the Economy Minister and you're wondering why France's productivity levels are falling -- but I'm not the Economy Minister am I?)

In case you're wondering: 1 May = May Day; 8 May = Victory Europe Day (WWII); 21 May = Ascension; 1 June = Pentacost.
