What is the Meaning & Definition of vacation

Period in which the activities are interrupted for rest and travel

The word vacation is normally used to designate that period of time in which a person or group of persons not made any kind of activity that has to do with labour issues but still receives a salary and certain additional benefits. In this period will disrupt the activities or tasks that we make on a daily basis, as we have already seen the work, but also to study, to do some course, among others.
While there are people who do not move anywhere and can stay in their homes enjoying the holidays, do nothing, have no schedules, and even more, programmed activities that by their daily obligations cannot be done, we should highlight that holidays are characterized by the trip somewhere, especially choose destinations that offer relaxation such is the case of the sea and the beach, although it is also common to take advantage of holidays for some part of our planet that is unknown.

The beach, the most chosen vacation destination

Now, most of the people choose beach vacation and therefore is that these places are full of tourists arrival the holiday season. In the southern hemisphere the holidays coincide with the heat and the same happens in the northern hemisphere, from January to March and from July to September, respectively. Thus in this way when the majority choose Beach and holiday destination you can enjoy the landscape and what it proposes.

Goodbye to the stress, Hello to relaxation

The holidays are also understood and taken as the time of the year in which a person can relax and unwind to get started then another year working with higher energies.
It is not a cliché that the holidays renew the person, allow you to rest and thus renew the desire. The routine is certainly tremendous and more when builds up a whole year to fulfil obligations work or student, among others.
As well as leisure is necessary at some point in the week, holidays are very important in the sense of allowing the person removed from everyday life, can relax and do what may not during the year.
Usually, holiday periods happen once or twice a year, towards the end of the same and close to the end of the year such as Christmas and new year festivities, and also half of year, taking advantage of school breaks, as appropriate.

An acquired right

The notion of vacation is typical of modern societies in which industrialised, planned and governed by fairly rigid schedules work is one of the main features. Historically, different job tasks that human beings could have not distinguished between working time and rest time (beyond some very brief moments that had to do mostly with religious celebrations): man worked throughout the year but did not as intensive as then the industrialized human being would. Enjoy relaxation and rest were exclusive privileges of the upper classes.
It was not until the late nineteenth century and early twentieth Centuries that would begin to talk about the holiday as one of the most important rights for anyone regardless of their social status or task. In this sense, slowly began to recognize that, next to family allowances and retirement, holidays were essential for workers to rest both body and mentally and enjoy the effort of an entire year. And then it became an acquired right contemplated by the legislation.
Certainly we must place the holiday as one of the most important social achievements of the last century.
The holidays tend to cover periods of ten or fifteen days, in some cases up to a month depending on the type of work. Each of these periods is payment, which means that the person continues to receive his salary despite not attending work. In this sense, tourism has grown greatly today and it is normal that for certain times of the year a large part of the population is traveling to destinations to enjoy your holidays alone, as a couple or with your family.
