In many denominations, when pastors serve more than one church they alternate weekends between congregations.
Three or four times a year there will come a month that has five weekends instead of four. Those weekends are "off". They get to be spent with the grandparents, or on a romantic getaway, or just sitting through a worship service together as a family/couple in another church listening to someone ELSE preach!
No matter what you do, if you get 5th weekends off it's special. Especially when they coincide with long holidays like Memorial Day!
