Guys, it's time to start planning your weekend getaways already. Out of 52 weekends in a year, 2014 has only five extended weekends!
And, one has to wait till Holi (March) to enjoy the first long weekend this year. While in April, you have the yearly Good Friday extended weekend, the months of June and July have none.
Travellers can bank on August and October as both the months have a four-day weekend. In fact, August alone has two sets of extended weekends. August 15, 16, 17 and 18 (Independence Day is a Friday and Janmashtmi is on the following Monday on August 18) and August 29 (Ganesh Chaturthi is a Friday), 30 and 31.
The last extended weekend of 2014 is in October from October 3rd, to 6th (Dussehra falls on a Friday and Bakrid is on a Monday).
