The real reason why Israel takes Hol HaMoed off as a holiday is in fact because, when your seder ends at 4am and you don’t get home ’till 6am and then you sleep on and off ’till 3pm (and thus are awake the following 4am), you realize that you’re gonna need a whole dang week to get your body clock back on some sort of respectable schedule.

That, and, of course, it’s Hol HaMoed, duh.

Oogh. Some of us are simply not intended to be nocturnal people.
