Holiday or Vacation - What's the difference?

Holiday or Vacation – What’s the difference?

Depending on which side of the “pond” (Atlantic Ocean) you are from, you may have different things come to mind when you hear the word holiday. For those who live in the United Kingdom, British English uses the term “holiday” to mean a vacation or getaway. However, for those who live in the United States or Canada, a holiday refers to a particular day in the year that is chosen to observe a special occasion such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day and so on. A vacation, on the other hand, is the term used when going somewhere to enjoy a bit of time away from the everyday grind. Whether it is going to include excitement and adventure or rest and relaxation (or all of the above!), a vacation (or a holiday for British folks) is a well-deserved and necessary part of enjoying life to the fullest.

In fact, retailers seem to be taking the concept further with each passing year, with many stores now opening at some point on Thanksgiving Day itself rather than waiting until the day after.

Regardless, Black Friday sales often feature the most incredible discounts of the year, which lure countless shoppers out to score some amazing deals for themselves. Understandably, many people like to use Black Friday as a good starting point for their holiday shopping. The History of the term “Black Friday” In modern times, hearing the …
