Now, you don’t have any excuses! Start planning your dream Andaman vacation because the 2017 long weekend list is out!
From Gandhi Jayanti to Janmashtami to Ed, there are a bunch of holidays to look forward to. Some for the good food that’s shared, some for the good cheer it brings and some for the opportunities to get away from the daily humdrum.
JANUARY At the end of the month comes Republic day and with it comes your first long weekend. Take a day off on 27th Jan to get a four-day vacation option going for you
FEBRUARY Who doesn’t like it when you get a holiday on a Friday. Mahashivratri falls on 24th Feb. Couple it with the weekend to make a three day dash to your favourite hideout
MARCH The festival of colours Holi falls on Monday the 13th in March. But that’s not all. You also get another long weekend if you take a day off on 27th, catching Gudi Padwa on the way out
APRIL 11 out of 30 days in the month can be a holiday for you if you plan it right! From Ram Navami to Dr. Ambedkar Jayanti to Easter, you can catch at least one weekend where you are celebrating a festival and another where you are taking time out for a getaway
MAY You better make hay in April because May doesn’t do much good as the sun shines high. But it’s also the time when many kids have a vacation so you may just have to take some PL / SL or whatever it is that your workplace offers to beat the heat
JUNE June rings in the good spirit with Ramzan Eid on Monday the 26
JULY Dry month folks. But after the wait comes the beautiful monsoon and it brings some really good time for you to spend with your family
AUGUST Ahhh… that’s the sigh you will heave when you see the holiday list in August. Just take leave on 16th and 19th to get 9 days holiday straight. The second long weekend in August comes for Ganesh Chaturti
SEPTEMBER Now that you’ve recharged yourself in August, its time to get back to work and hit those targets so that your year end review doesn’t look as colourful as this list
OCTOBER The month starts with a long weekend for Gandhi Jayanti. Often the month of celebrations in India, you’ll have a stretch of holidays for Diwali, Dhan Teras and Bhai Dooj during the month. Did we also mention that it’s one of the best times to visit Andaman!
NOVEMBER With major festivals and days out of the way, November is a month that simply flies by as you wait for the year end and Christmas festivities
DECEMBER Come year end, the cheer is in the air and it’s time to fulfill your holiday resolutions and party your way into the new year!
Now that you know the best 2017 long weekends to plan your Andaman vacation, all you need to do is make your booking!
