Swiss holidays

Someone asked about Swiss holidays a few months ago and I don't think I ever responded. Here are the holidays I don't have to work:

New Year's Day
Good Friday
Easter Monday
Ascension Day
August 1st (National founding was on Aug 1, 1291)
Jeune Federal
Stephen's Day

Jeune Federal should have a ^ over the u and Federal should have ' over the e's. The vacation days differ by canton. Here in Vaud I think we just get the basics. I believe that the law requires all employees to receive 4 weeks of vacation a year. It is either law or company policy that at some point each year everyone has to take two consecutive weeks off.
