Just like that, 2017 is now halfway done. I’m sure some of you are already planning your Christmas lists and other holiday stuff. I’m not sure if I’m looking forward to hearing Christmas carols in September though. I think we should be asking our lawmakers to come up with a law to prevent that…

Anyway, if planning ahead is your thing (which should be the way, honestly), plan your leaves and vacations around the long weekends and holidays for 2018! Booking flights and hotels can come out to be cheaper if you book ahead – just saying…

Looks like we may be able to enjoy 13 long weekends! Check it out!
