General stuff

I'm not sure which of the following might be obvious and which wouldn't so I'll just put it all down

  • Everyone here takes a holiday every year. People with children would mostly take it in the summer when the kids are out of school (our school year runs from September to June) when, of course, the prices go up so that's why I generally head off at other times. Most people just go for the two weeks and in Northern Ireland that usually means the 'twelfth fortnight' which is the fortnight containing the July 12th holiday when factories usually close down. Usually people head off somewhere warm and sunny which in most cases means Spain or the Greek islands though a lot of people have started going to France (usually taking their own car on the ferry).
  • Children would generally walk to school if they're close enough but you really notice the extra traffic caused by the school runs when classes start after the summer
