If you could take 3 months off from work.....

Would you take off during the winter months, or the summer?

As much as I'd love to have Spring/Summer off, I think I would rather take the winter off because I hate going out in the cold. I don't like the slush, etc.

    If I could travel, I would take the winter off.
    If not, then the summer (June-August.)
    In the winter I would get to bored and depressed if I had to not work.

    Definitely summer, June through August. Then I could spend time developing and working in a real garden with lots of flowers. I could travel more too. I do hate having to drive to work when it's snowing, but I'd much rather have time off when the weather is warm.

    I did maternity leave w/ my first in the spring/summer and with my second now through Jan. I prefer the spring summer because being couped up inside is driving me nuts.

    I took a 2 months sabbatical last year, in the spring late April to early June.

    Winter for sure. Would love to stay home and hibernate during the months of January, February and March. I hate driving during those months.

    Definitely summer. There's nothing to do here in the winter.

    Summers here are brutal & our winters are beautiful. If I couldn't go anywhere else, then I would choose to take time off in the winter. I'd sit in the hot tub each morning & watch everyone else leave for work. I'd build myself a fire & sip on baileys and coffee. The afternoons would be spent shopping, going to the zoo & the park with my grandchildren.

    If I could afford to travel, then I would take the Summer off & go somewhere else where the Summers are nice.

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    I know it wasn't an option, but late summer, early fall. Enjoy some of the summer activities when it's still nice during the summer, then visit the places which are usually packed during the fall when folks are at work and school.
