Take your vacation

Did you know that the average American employee gets only 13 days paid vacation per year?

Compare that against 28 days for Great Britian, 37 for France and a huge 42 days in Italy.

Not only that, but what to me is even crazier, is that many Americans don't take the full amount of vacation days due them. And then when they do go away, the Blackberry and laptop computer come with them.

Nuts in my opinion.

Do you know where the word vacation comes from? Vacate. As in 'leave' or 'empty out'.

Everyone should take their vacation time as everyone needs time to distress and discharge. Actually, vacationing can be very good for your health.
