The easter holiday

I don´t know how common this is among universities in this country as a whole, but here at least the terms are prohibitively long. Basically you get June and July off for the summer as well as a month or so around the Christmas/new year time. The only other breaks you get are a week off in the middle of each term (a bit like a university wide reading week I suppose).

Naturally one of these corresponds to the easter holiday. In the UK this would mean having Good Friday and the Easter Monday off. Here it is slightly different. Whilst there no teaching in the university is happening this week as a whole, the official holiday seems to be Thursday to Sunday – and in the university the official holiday for the staff begins today!

I appear to be the only person in the whole of the department, except for the cleaners. 😦
