Long Weekend – Australia Day
A long weekend is coming!
Yes, that is right! Next Monday I don’t have to go to work! It is a holiday for Australia Day!
A long weekend is when either Friday or Monday is a public holiday, and people don’t have to go to work or school. It is called a long weekend, because usually weekends have only 2 days off (Saturday and Sunday).
But on a long weekend there are 3 or sometimes even 4 days off.
For example: Easter is a long weekend, because we have Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday off work and school. So Easter is a 4 day long weekend!
Australia Day is only 1 day – Monday. So I will have a 3 day long weekend!
Question: What are some of the long weekends in your country?
