July 4th, 2007 is a Wednesday. So, which weekend is the "holiday weekend", 6/29 - 7/1 or 7/6 - 7/8?? Online and real-world opinion that I've surveyed is right about 50-50. Kinda makes it hard to plan something when you don't know when exactly the traffic will be bad.

When are YOU travelling?

The wifey & I are going to Niagra for the whole week to hang out with her grampy and take a quick trip over to Toronto while we're there.

We leave CA on July 1st and return on the 7th.

Sounds like traffic will either be split amongst the two weekends, or horrible on both since a lot will take the whole week.

Reality will probably be in between the two.

I'm going to be in Vegas from the 4th to 11th. So, for me, I took the latter weekend to "celebrate" it.

Since Canada Day is the 1st and the 2nd is my birthday, I believe I will take the first weekend...

The holiday in Canada is the 2nd.

I kind of old and such. I remember when a "holiday" fell on the day it fell on and three day weekends were unheard of. For me July 4th is a celebration of the founding of my country. I also do crazy stuff like attend the Memorial Day service at the cemetary to honor our military. I sympathize with needing time off but does it matter which weekend it is.
But to answer your question, the previous Saturday is June 30 so I vote for the wekend after.

Since the Fourth is a Wednesday, I get...Wednesday off. Perhaps I will appreciate it more in December, since Christmas is a Tuesday this year.

The only real solution here is to take the whole WEEK off.
