Holidays, one

Holiday is any day on which people lay aside their ordinary duties and cares. The word comes from the Anglo-Saxon halig daeg, or holy day.

At first, holidays were given to honour some sacred event or holy person. Nowadays, people speak of holidays or vacations meaning a break from work, school, or everyday routine.
