Vocab Builder: Gone Fishin’

I’m taking a short break from blogging for the next week or so to get a big editing project done. Until then, check out these time-off related words:

Vacation: Time off from work; time devoted to leisure activities
Staycation: A vacation at home
Holiday: (Brit. Eng.) A vacation
Mancation: A vacation just for men (What, “boys’ weekend” wasn’t good enough?)
Wraparound vacation: A vacation from Friday to Monday or time off the day before and after a holiday
Sabbatical: Leave from work, usually occurring every seven years
