I work 12 months out of the year and don't have full vacation breaks like teachers (2 week winter break, 2 week spring break, etc) including summer. Teachers come back and ask us how our summer was, "oh it was great! I was still here, working!" I cry a little inside when they ask.
I really enjoy Thanksgiving because it's the first real break I've had since Labor Day (beginning of september for you UK folk). The school system I work in doesn't take off columbus day or veteran's day so I literally haven't had a break from work in almost three months
