People say that human beings are born to work. However, not all are enthusiastic about endless employment. As a result, holidays have been invented to allow a break for hardworking people, encouraging them "to work hard and play hard." However, instead of coming back refreshed and excited after the fun, what often accompanies the end of a holiday are feelings of lassitude, tiredness and even boredom about returning to your desk. Doctors name these negative feelings as post-holiday syndrome.

Many bosses and doctors believe that post-holiday syndrome exists both mentally and physically. In order to motivate employee's morale as soon as possible, some companies even offer financial incentives. One Internet user said her company offered 500 yuan ($79) as a prize for those who were not late for work on the first day after the holiday. Other companies give the year-end bonus to employees when they come back to work after the Lunar New Year.

In a more creative fashion, some bosses choose to light strings of firecrackers on the first working day after the Spring Festival, as they believe firecrackers, which can blast for dozens of minutes, would be more powerful than clock alarms in awakening people and getting them back into work.

Austin Free Week

>Implying anyone here wants that.

As for me,
Why whould I want hollidays?
Feels cosy here.
I only need to show up in the Faculty as much as twice a week for one or two hours, and can freely decide the rest of my workload as it pleases me, and do it wherever I want. When it's not snowing clean and perfectly white snow, the skies it's falling from are clean, clear and blue. Blue and white as beautyful as on the beautyful Flag of the Free State of Bavaria. Unlike back in China the Air is even so clean that I can distinctively smell out any single car passing by, despite the clean fuel, widespread filter, and well maintained Engines.
It's almost as beautyful as in Switzerland, what more could I want?

What's wrong with London?
It's nice, and then even though located in Britain, plenty of opportunity to evade your local british Cuisine, as you recently showed yoursself here.
