"Long weekends" are a great time for vacation, travel, get-together to spent quality time with family and friends..
When is the next long weekend? This is one of the most common question we hear around the office, schools and social gatherings.
Regardless of how much you enjoy your job or how limited your leaves are, we all need a healthy work-life balance to be happy and successful with our family and friends. For those who are working full-time for an employer, you have a limited number of paid vacation days given each year. However you also have a set number of annual holidays when the company or office is closed. You can combine your leaves with national holidays and what you get an extremely long weekend for your dream holidays.Long Weekends in India 2017
