Packaged within the concept of holidays is freedom: holidays are meant to free us in some way. Even imagining a future holiday and shoulders relax and eyes become strangely unfocused as if you are already seeing distant horizons. Yet holidays remind us of the burden of everyday life, how much weight and responsibility we carry around, and how much this burden impedes us from doing other, more interesting activities that we would rather be doing. Holidays happen someplace, somewhere else, and wonít happen if we donít cast off our lives and run away, escaping the treadmill of our everyday reality.
