In the US, we have a lot of one day holidays that nicely break up the school year. Memorial Day, Labor Day, Pulaski Day (if you’re in Chicago) and Thanksgiving to name a few. These give you the sweet blessing of a 4 day (or less) work week. I’d say at least once per month in the US, you get a three day weekend.
