I ask cuz I was just watching a movie where the kids were still in school really close to Christmas Eve.
Up here our summer vacation lasts 3 months unless theres a pandemic.


(Actually, I got out of school 23 years ago so its possible things have changed.)

Friend of mine says about a week before Christmas until late in January. He doesn't have kids so he was a bit vague! 😆
