Fewer two-week vacations?

Unless i'm mistaken, there have only been a couple of two-week vacations this year. There was one over the summer, and the usual two-week vacation at the end of the year.

How many vacation weeks did Howard have on K-Rock but what was the calendar like?

He has 10 weeks on Sirius, but the calendar is like this:
Spring Break (2 weeks? 1 week?)
NYC schools (1 week)
Summer break around July 4th (2 weeks this year)
This past week (1 week)
Thanksgiving (1 week)
Christmas (2 weeks)
Labor Day (1 week)

Assuming that spring break was 1 week, that takes it to 9 weeks.

Maybe that's part of the reason why it seems like a constant vacation...there are more vacations, but when he does go on vacation, it's quicker?

Labor Day week added to the first post.

Still, I wonder how the actual "vacation calendar" compares between Sirius and K-Rock.

Wait til Christmas.

December is always a two week vacation.

I know. OTOH, there's usually so much going on then between various holiday parties, History of Howard, and whatever else that the two weeks goes by quite fast.


What i'm saying is that is that I seem to remember more two-week vacations in points before 2005. He may take the same (or more) vacation now on Sirius, but it seems more spaced out.

An example of 12 weeks:
