Did you know humans allow an estimated 400 million vacation days to go unused every year?

That’s just nuts!

I learned this recently while IM’ing my cousin Daryl in Charlotte and my other cousin Daryl in Raleigh. Charlotte Daryl saw this commercial and he about fell out of his nest …

For the record, Daryl, Daryl and I really admire the work ethic of humans. It’s what makes America such a great country! And we squirrels, too, work much of the year to store away nuts for the winter … but, we also realize the importance of travel and leisure time. Vacations make us bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. And they can do the same for you.

So, as we approach a new year, keep in mind those vacation days you have earned and don’t let them fall by the wayside. As the commercial suggests, take one more day. Heck, take two more days!

Think of the relaxation that awaits. Think of your family. Think of all the fun you can have in places like Beech Mountain.

And in 2016, do yourself a favor by actually using your vacation days. It’s nuts not to.
