I'm aware of that, but for someone complaining about American English, you seem awful blind to the inconsistencies in your own dialect. Even over there, 'holiday' is mostly a singular noun, derived from 'holy day' and implying an event of a single day. Technically, the common Brit English use of it is actually incorrect.It doesn't mean that here. We don't have many "holidays" of your meaning other than Christmas, Bank Holidays and maybe Easter.
I believe they do, think it's November 5. They also get that "Boxing Day" thing off, too.Do you guys not get off for Guy Fawkes? No, not that kind of "get off", though far be it for me to judge if you prefer to celebrate with those kinds of fireworks.
