Translator's note

Remember that holiday and vacation mean two different things in American English, while being equivalent words in American and British English.

Thus, while someone who uses British English would take holiday leave, or go on holiday, an American English speaker would take vacation days - or go on vacation. The word "holiday" in American English means a legal day off for nearly every worker, such as New Year's Day or Independence Day (4 July in the US, 17 May here in Norway).
