The scheme to introduce a two-week winter holiday in the academic calendar does not have much support among lawmakers who believe it would cause a chaos in the nationwide school schedule. 
The plan has been proposed by government bodies which cite various reasons. Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization is in favor of the plan on the ground that it would provide an opportunity for families to take a trip to the southern cities that enjoy warmer climates in the winter, thus promoting domestic tourism. It would also help distribute travel time throughout the year to avoid mass tourism in high seasons.
