What are the minimum criteria for your time off to be considered a vacation?
I like to do something - hanging around the house for a week is basically what I do now. I think my husband would answer the same way and he works very hard.
For me it is both: it needs to be at least a week, and I need to be doing something out of the norm. Not necessarily expensive or flashy.

Yeah, well there is that too. 8)
Time off of work is most important. But, I love to travel so I can't stay home most vacations.
For me a preferred vacation is staying home.
My job calls it "vacation" if I'm not "working" and it's a regular work day and I'm not using a sick day. I don't know that I'm ever truly on vacation since I don't know how to totally leave work at work :-P
