We’re on holiday!

It’s a bank holiday here in the UK, so we’re taking the day off to spend some time with our families. If you’re desperate to read some content, I’ve got good news for you: there are thousands of posts about the Raspberry Pi that you can leaf through right here. Head over to the archive and fill your boots!

Normal service will resume tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s Hypnotoad so you can have something to look at.

A bank holiday is a public holiday in the UK. The banks are closed and historically therefore business cannot take place.
See Wikipedia for a full explanation:

and why is it when you take a day off from work you call it a holiday?

Let me Wikipedia that for you, too:

The word holiday comes from the Old English word hāligdæg (hālig “holy” + dæg “day”).[1] The word originally referred only to special religious days. In modern use, it means any special day of rest or relaxation, as opposed to normal days away from work or school.
