October is the favourite choice, with 37% of those surveyed saying they liked the Government’s suggestions for a ‘Trafalgar Day.’ September was the next most popular, getting 15% of the vote.
But whether workers even get to enjoy the holiday is another matter. The survey from IFF Research also showed that 42% of SMEs were open yesterday, despite it being a statutory public holiday. And around a sixth think there are too many bank holidays as it is, and that it’s too costly for their business. Bah, humbug.
