1: holy day
2: a day on which one is exempt from work ; specifically : a day marked by a general suspension of work in commemoration of an event
3chiefly British : vacation —often used in the phrase on holiday —often used in plural
4: a period of exemption or relief
I choose option #4 for the Montoya definition of holiday. We could certainly use a period of exemption or relief at my house. Exemption from schedules and commitments. Relief from pressure and stress.
Cheers to everyone for a long, relaxing weekend with those we love.
