Plan For Vacation Day

National Plan For Vacation Day is a holiday that’s observed on the last Tuesday in January and encourages everyone around the U.S to start planning their much-anticipated summer vacations. This is a holiday that serves a purpose for both the people who usually take a vacation and for people who never take a vacation.

On the other hand, too many Americans leave their vacation days unused and this holiday encourages those Americans to take their vacation day when summer rolls around. No matter which side of the fence you stand behind, the message of this holiday is simple: Plan a great vacation for this summer!
