Not-BF is in the Navy, so his “time off” is rare. Luckily, he will be home for xmas. He doesn’t have any time off persay, he still has to work the coming weeks and he gets xmas off.

I get every day “off” I guess, being a stay-at-home wife looking for work.

If I’d been employed where I am for the whole year (local government) then I’d get 4 paid days. But since I got put on the books in September, I only qualify for one day, so I’ll either be working through or taking whatever annual leave I have, which is only 20 hours at the moment…

@Pokemon:  

 

I get Christmas Day & Boxing Day off at my full-time job.  I’ll probably end up working Boxing Day though at my part-time job.  So, just Christmas Day probably.

@Pokemon:  yah, our stat holidays are just Christmas and Boxing Day. And then NY’s day too. I use vacation days to full in the gaps so I have at least two weeks off.

i don’t get any holidays off unless it happens to be on one of my normal off days. Darling Husband gets christmas day off, but that’s it.

One day. (Techically a government worker)

Christmas isn’t a huge deal in this country.

I work in the restaurant industry so I already have Sunday/Monday off for my weekend. In addition I get two days off. Xmas day and the day after.

NYE is what really screws us up because we are ALWAYS open on NYE. So we get off Sunday the 30th, work the 31st, and then get the 1st off as well. What a shitty week that’s going to be.
