    I get zip!  I’m a teacher and Fiance is self-employed so we’re doing ok…but no “extras”.

    We get a bottle of any kind of alcohol. I work for a very small company. So depending on what it is the dollar amount would be different. No matter what we get, it’s definitely not enough! I am thankful for my bottle of Jack though…

    EOY, about $1,500. Not much but better than nothing.

    I could see where a Holiday Bonus would be the more appropriate wording.  I quit my job a month ago and my old bosses still sent me a holiday bonus and I am still invited to the Christmas party.  They just sold the place but the new year is when everyone got their raises.

    I am a full time nanny and I generally get a Christmas bonus that is equal to one weeks pay.  I am working for a new family though, and in a new state, so we will see what happens this year.

    Darling Husband gets a raise on January 1st.  Other than that, nothing.  Technically, he is eligible for bonuses for completing certain things, but they are getting rarer these days.

    My bonus is my 12 day vacation over Christmas and New Years.  Yay for teacher schedules!!  It makes up for the crappy pay the rest of the year… 😉

    For the past two years I’ve received an end of the year bonus equal to approximately 1 month net pay along with a merit based raise, (average of 6%).  We’ll see what happens this year.

    Lol, this year I get a turkey from my job. My husband works at the same place as me now, so we will have two turkeys. No idea how to cook one lol.

    At the job I worked at for 6 years before that, we would get a candle. One of the ones we sold for $10. Awesome 😛

    I’ve gotten small gifts from a temp job I worked at and gift cards from my last job. I made out like a bandit!

    I work for the government, so we definitely don’t get any sort of bonuses at all. But I used to work for a very small law firm (four attorneys and one paralegal) and I got a holiday gift (a gift card for a spa massage!) and a bonus which was about $1,000. I definitely miss that, but I love my current job so I guess it’s worth it. (:

    I work at a private school, so we usually get a Christmas bonus from the PTO.  Last year, we even got a Thanksgiving bonus!
