In Sweden, we not only get spring break, we also get fall break. All of the kids are out of school and many families take a week-long trip. Our family is one of these this year. We are going south to some warmer weather for a week (hopefully – if it doesn’t rain).
I see fall break as a “last hurrah” before the harshness of winter sets in here. We do our time change this weekend, right when the break starts and by the time we get back, we could have temperatures below 0.
It’s fairly cold already and I’ve been refraining from wearing my winter jacket because I know once I put it on, I have to wear it for 6 months straight. But I’ve already decided that when we get back from fall break, I will give in. Then I will acknowledge that winter is upon us.
