Each summer in Japan the country celebrates the Obon summer break. Although Obon is a Buddhist ceremony celebrating the spirits of the dead, the living use the time, a clumped together group of national holidays, to take a break during the hottest time on the Japanese calendar. We follow the used car auctions leads and give our staff a break. The following auction holiday schedule will be followed. Note we are open for bidding when the auctions are open, though the other staff will be on a break.
