How to turn 15 vacation days into 52 in 2024: the secret is revealed
Getting extra days before your vacation is not an easy task, especially if your bosses are not very friendly.
However, you can legally extend your vacation. John Liang of johnsfinancetips shared his tricky method on TikTok. He explained how everyone can take at least 54 days off next year.
It should be noted that you don't actually get more days off by following Liang's advice. Instead, he suggests a method to maximize the use of long weekends and other holidays that employers usually provide as paid vacation.
But keep in mind that this advice only works if you already have weekends and public holidays, because sometimes work schedules can be quite specific.
To start, Liang suggested taking January 2 off to get four consecutive days off. Then he advised taking January 16, the Tuesday after Martin Luther King Day, off to get four more days off to relax.
It's also worth asking for February 16 off to have four days off for President's Day. You'll have to wait until May to get more time off, but that's okay because, as Liang explained, you can ask for May 24, the Friday before Memorial Day, off. And get four completely free days again.
In June, if you take June 17, 18, 20, and 21 off to celebrate June 16, you will get as many as 9 days of so-called vacation.
In 2024, July 4 falls on a Thursday, so if you take Friday, July 5, off, you'll get four more days in a row.
In September, you can also request a day off on Tuesday, September 3, the day after Labor Day. In October, you can simply enjoy the long weekend of Indigenous Peoples' Day without requesting any extra time off.
Then, on November 11, the United States celebrates Veterans Day, which will last three more days. And if you ask for the Friday after Thanksgiving (November 29), you'll get four more days off in a row.
Finally, in December, you can get nine more consecutive days off simply by requesting December 23-24 and December 26-27 for Christmas.
"My biggest piece of advice," he added, "is to try to get those requests in early.
