Europeans work to live and Americans live to work.† I heard that repeated today in a podcast about the history of Americans and vacations.† I do think it is by and large true although the reasons for still confusing me somewhat.††I know that the saying doesnít apply to me. I donít think it is right to blame the Puritans for it Ė the corporate world of America was created in a time when the population was much more diverse. †People in both Europe and America had to work hard to survive for decades; vacations are a more recent development.
