Brits Get Holiday Blues

Posted on 06 September 2007

A new survey carried out by Birmingham International Airport has discovered that most Britons feel down after returning from their holiday.

According to the survey, 66% of holiday makers were upset after coming back from a bright sunny beach to the dull, rainy reality of the UK.

One in eight people also admitted they were so desperate to extend their holiday that they had invented an excuse to stay off work the first day they were due back. Six per cent also admitted to having falsely phoned in sick within two weeks of returning from their holiday.

The results even show that one in thirty holidaymakers would rather quit or change their job than face going back to work after their holiday.

Relaxation, and a stress free environment is the most important part of a holiday according to 58% of the participants. Fifty per cent of voters also stated they missed the warm weather, with around 20% missing the foreign foods the most.
