Summer Vacation Affects Everyone
Last week, one of my younger friends asked an interesting question: “My daughter is only two years old, and she is not in school yet. Why do I care about summer vacation?” Yet as the conversation continued, it was clear that summer vacation matters to everyone, not just students and teachers. There are natural rhythms of life that are dictated by the change of seasons, but there are also artificial rhythms that are dictated by the pattern of the school year.
In A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, set in 19th century England, Ebenezer Scrooge grudgingly allowed his employee to take the day off on Christmas Day because he knew that the other shops and offices would be closed that day. In 21st century Florida, many businesses close for an entire week between Christmas and New Year. One reason for the change is that so many employees have children home for Christmas break.
Even if you have no children yet, or are an empty nester, summer vacation will have a secondary effect on your life. There will be fewer traffic jams and slow-downs in school zones at the beginning and end of the school day. We all need to be more careful to look out for playing children throughout the day as we drive through our neighborhoods.
One major difference that is true for almost everyone is that Floridians spend much more time in the sun between Memorial Day and Labor Day. It is already hot here, but your exposure to the sun is likely to increase dramatically over the next ten weeks. One step you can take to protect yourself and your family from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays is to have window tinting installed in your vehicle, home, or place of business.
