Spring Holidays

As much as I love the long summer school vacation in the US, I have secretly thought that a shorter summer vacation and more vacations during the year would be better. Kids forget so much in three months that the beginning of the school year must backtrack a month or more to get kids back up to speed. As a parent, the dog days of August got really long, and it seemed time to get those kids back into a routine.

Zürich is right in the middle of spring school holidays which lasts for two weeks. The kids had five days off at Easter and also in the city there was no school on Sechseläuten, and there will be more days off at Ascension (Himmelfahrt) and Whit Monday (Pfingsmontag), but then summer holidays don’t start until mid-July and last only about a month.Screen Shot 2015-04-24 at 2.27.42 PM
