New Zealand on holiday

A lot of my posts lately have in one way or another talked about how New Zealand is on holiday this time of year (for example, see my previous post). Here’s some more evidence.

Regular readers will have noticed the Technorati chart I placed on this blog, showing the number of posts per day containing “
New Zealand”. On December 23, the number dropped below 1000 per day for the first time in a long time, and only began to go up again on January 8—which, as it happens, was the first day back at work for a lot of people following the Christmas-New Year holidays.

We all know that bloggers are the centre of the universe (just ask us—we’ll tell you), and the fact we stopped making mention of New Zealand over the public holidays proves what a big deal it was. I mean, if the summer holidays can tear bloggers away from their computer keyboards, just imagine the general holiday mode that covers the country.

Seriously, though, it’s one of the things that makes this country so great at this time of year.
