Aaron's thread got me thinking. .. am I the only one that will be here at work tomorrow? (Stalking the forums because it'll probably be quiet?!?) What about the day after Christmas? One of my bosses told me that we can opt to take Friday unpaid, but nothing's been announced as of yet. I had saved vacation up to 2 weeks ago when I had to use it for my darned cyst! So, who has to work?

I get tomorrow off. We don't get many days during the year, but we always get 2 days at Thanksgiving and 2 days at Christmas. DH and I both took Friday off as a vacation day and were both approved months ago. His boss came back this week and said he might call DH in that morning It's pointless for him to go in, so we're both a bit peeved about it. That also means we have to come home on Christmas day to make sure we're here for him to go back to work.

I'm jobless at the moment, myself (due to a recent lay-off) so I'm not working. BUT, I always did on Christmas Eve and the day after Christmas.

My husband only has Christmas off- he works Christmas Eve (day) and after Christmas

I'm working tomorrow as is my DH. My DH may also have to go in for a few hours on Christmas day as well. I did request Friday off as vacation.

I'm not working tomorrow but I'm working 4pm to midnight on the 25th. The good thing about it is that I'll get paid AND they'll give me two extra days off that I can take any time next year. So it's not too bad. I'm also working on the 28th, 29th, 30th and January 2nd. Chris is on vacation (paid) starting tomorrow until Jan. 5!

Ugh, this is a sort topic for me. I have two vacation days left this year, and other than Christmas day itself, I wanted to use one tomorrow, since my hubbie (who's in retail) miraculously got the day off, and we haven't had a full day together since Thanksgiving (as I'm in the 9-5 M-F world, which doesn't mesh with holiday shopping hours ), but nooooo, boss says he wants to close the office for the day AFTER Christmas and wants everyone to use that day as their second holiday day. I'd rather work Fri then Wed, but he's pretty firm about it, so I guess I'll be stuck here.

Man it really sucks that some of you have to work around the holidays, I'm sorry! I have off because I'm a teacher (one of my favorite perks of teaching)!

Since my boss just told us we can take Friday unpaid (or come in and work if you have stuff to work on), I decided I'm going to NOT tell DH (he's off Wed-Friday), and set the alarm for Friday... then I'm going to keep snoozing it and act like I'm not going in, then surprise him and tell him I'm staying home! It sounds way funnier in my head I'm sure than it does writing it, but you get the idea!

When I was a Nanny though, eventhough I had a flexible schedule, I still had to work on Christmas eve and the day after (as long as it wasn't a weekend). Mom and Dad needed me to distract the kids and let them have a break from the excited children! LOL It was always fun to me though, so I didn't mind working those days!

Wow, I feel pretty lucky. I'm an accountant and I get Wed-Fri off because they are holidays for us. I also get next Thursday and Friday (Jan 1-2) off for holidays. I'm taking PDO next Mon-Wed, so after the next 1.5 hours, I don't have to be back here till Jan 5!!!!!

My work has 10 holidays, basic 8 plus 2 floating that the firm sets. I think it's pretty common in the accounting world. HOWEVER, I will come back in January working like 55 hours a week until April, so there are trade-offs!

I had a 1/2 day today and I don't go back until January 5th. (I am working my second job the 26,27,28 and then I'm done forever).
My office takes on the Texas A&M University holidays and we shut down during the Christmas break! It is one perk of working for the state and having my office on an educational campus.
