Herman, you always set the bar so high!!!! Fantastic silhouette, colour and composition.

Did you say you didn't know what a bank holiday was? I once asked this very question, when in ankle socks and was told to find out for myself. Since this is what I use to do to my students when I didn't know the answer I am guessing my teacher didn't know either.

Not totally sure if it is unique to USA, UK and Mainland Europe; it pre-dates cash machines and debit cards etc when we could only trade using coins of the realm. Hence, when the banks were closed business' could not function and therefore also closed which of course means that employees had a day off. With the exception of Easter and Christmas, Bank holidays always fall on a Monday, but more recently we have additional Bank Holidays that relate to Royal Events, like my birthdayGrin. The UK has fewer bank holidays than Europe and generally speaking also has fewer normal holidays and work longer hours for less pay, which is why we are always shattered........................ So basically a Bank Holiday generates a long weekend because the banks are closed, a tradition we are loath to let go despite now having facilities such as electronic banking.
