As we near the end of 2016’s first full month, summer holidays are already becoming a too-distant memory for many kiwis returning to work and school.
It may not be a majority, though – as we asked in this week’s poll just how many of our readers have taken a holiday so far this summer – and the results surprised us all!
Just a third of those who voted said they’d had their summer break already, with the majority of respondents still to take theirs – or skipping a holiday altogether.
One commenter in the minority, Robyn, said
“We have had a summer holiday at Gt Barrier Isld from Xmas to New Year with rain at first followed by hot sunny days. Beautiful place.”
