みなさん、こんにちは。
SAKURA TIPSは、日本語リスニングのPodcastです。

————————–

今日のテーマは、祝日についてです。

日本では、7月の22日と23日は祝日です。
私もその日は仕事が休みになり、木曜日から日曜日まで4日間週末があります。
これは今年だけの祝日です。
7月にある祝日と、あと10月にある祝日がこの日に移動してきました。
理由はオリンピックです。
オリンピックに向けて祝日を移動させたということです。
私的にはどちらでも良いのですが、まぁ祝日が減ったわけでもないし、増えたわけでもないので、まぁどちらでもいいかなと思っています。

日本には1年間に16日祝日があります。
私の会社ではカレンダー通りなので、祝日は休みです。
ただ、日本人は祝日があっても、何をお祝いする日なのか分かっていない人が多いです。
私たちが重要だと思っているのは、その日が休みだということです。

なので、試しにもし日本人の友達がいたら、今日はなんで祝日なの?と聞いてみてください。
答えられる人は結構少ないと思います。
まぁ日本人はあまり休みをとらないので、このように祝日があって強制的に休む環境は大事です。
皆さんももし日本で働く機会があれば、祝日が大好きになると思います。

それでは、今日はこのへんで終わりにしようと思います。

Hello, everyone.
SAKURA TIPS is a Japanese listening Podcast.

————————–

Today’s theme is about national holidays.

In Japan, the 22nd and 23rd of July are national holidays.
I also have that day off from work and have a four-day weekend from Thursday to Sunday.
These are the only holidays this year.
The one in July and the other one in October have been moved to these days.
The reason is the Olympics.
The government just moved the holidays for the Olympics.
In my opinion, it doesn’t matter which one it is, but well, it doesn’t mean that the number of holidays has decreased, nor has it increased.

There are 16 national holidays in a year in Japan.
At my company, we follow the calendar, so we are off on national holidays.
However, many Japanese people don’t know what they are celebrating even if there are national holidays.
What we think is important is that the day is a holiday.

So, if you have a Japanese friend, try asking him or her why today is a holiday. I think there are very few people who can answer that question.
I’m sure not many of them will be able to answer.
Well, Japanese people don’t take vacations very often, so it is important to have this kind of environment where we can take a mandatory day off.
If you have a chance to work in Japan, you will love holidays more.
