American Sign Language: "holiday"

The sign for "holiday" Is the same sign as "vacation."
I've noticed though that I tend to do vacation using a single movement when I'm talking about "time off" or SPRING "break."

For the sign "holiday" I use a double movement.
Poke your upper chest area twice with the thumb tips of your relaxed 5-hands.



See: Animation: "HOLIDAY"

The sign “VACATION” can be used to mean:
* Holiday
* “OFF” (work)
* Break (time off).
 If you initialize the sign VACATION with an “R” or do it with just the index and thumb, it can mean “retired”
