Because I’m still quite new to many things in the United Kingdom, like the public holidays, I am often a bit surprised by them. Like this week I learned that next Monday is the May bank holiday Monday. It’s a pleasant surprise and reminds me of how I used to get surprised by holidays when I was in school.
“See you on Monday, guys!”
“Eh, yeah, Monday in a week!”
“Yes, it’s spring break, you idiot!”
