i was thinking…

My neighbor from  Nova Scotia was talking this evening about going “on Holiday” in January.   It occurs to me that the phrase “Happy Holidays” may have an additional meaning. As you probably know, what we in the US call a “Vacation” is called a “Holiday” on the other side of the Atlantic. Therefore, the phrase “Happy Holidays” could be used not only a one-size-fits-all season’s greeting, but could also be used as a sort of “bon voyage.” So, whether you’re traveling this season, or staying home, happy holidays to you.

    I have picked up the expression ‘going on holiday’ as it sounds British and oh so sophisticated.
