I have several colleagues who regularly hoard their annual leave and then, in March, don't come to work at all. It seems like such a waste. Not that the idea of taking a whole month off doesn't appeal (and nothing against March, as such) but if you're choosing a month to spend away from work it's got to be May or June or, at a pinch, September.
Also, to take March off means you've gone through the entire leave year turning things down, never luxuriating in a long weekend, and thinking: "Oh well, only another 273 days to go and it'll be March again..."
In the 'current climate' it also hints at dispensability.
