Everyone loves a holiday! Some people are just luckier than others because they are entitled to more holidays in their countries.

Western Europe and Latin America countries have more mandated paid holidays per year than their peers in North America and Asia, according to a report "2012 Worldwide Benefit and Employment Guidelines" released by the human resources consulting firm Mercer.

The annual report provides data into global working practices and regulations in 62 countries and counts both the statutory minimum number of days’ holiday that companies must provide to staff, as well as the number of public holidays in 62 countries.

Check out the 10 countries that are most generous in holiday entitlements, according to Mercer. 


Employees in Spain have a total of 36 holidays, including 22 statutory holidays and 14 public holidays.
