It might not be for the reasons you are thinking. Every year, during a foreclosure market, we experience the same things when it comes to foreclosures and their releases. I remember the days with the LAPD, when I was new, I and all of the other “newbees” always wanted to have a long and short vacation. The short is given at 10 years of service.
With regard to the time of year, DP 13, which encompasses Christmas and New Years, it was only granted to those that had time on the job. For purposes of this post, “time on the job” Equaled over 15 years (at that time in history 1990-1992).
Here is a quick you tube video that talks about the Foreclosures and why they slow down during the holidays.
