    We “get” Thanksgiving and Christmas Day off.  I’m new at this job, so I was only “allowed” to pick one other day.  I picked Black Friday, so I have to work Christmas Eve.

    I am a PhD student and so my schedule is pretty flexible but basically the university closes on the 23rd and is partially open the 27th,28th, 29th but doesn’t truly re-open until the 4th! I will take this whole time off!

    Fiance on the other hand really only has bank holidays off because he works at a bank; however, this is way better than his last job because there they were open ON CHRISTMAS – UGH!

    I think its such a waste to make people come in on certain days.  Maybe its just my office but the day after Thanksgiving and the days leading to Christmas are FAR from productive.  They may as well send us all home!  Even my boss is hopped up on eggnog, what’s the use?  Lol.  So, I always take the day after Thanksgiving off and Christmas Eve.  Usually I take off more but since they ration our days in such a dumb way I have to save up for the wedding/honeymoon, yuck.

    We get Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, and New Years Day off, but this year for obvious reasons, I will be done with work Christmas Eve and won’t be back till 1/11/09.

    I work for a university that is closed the following days: Thankgiving and Friday as well as 12/25-1/4.  It’s really nice because you’re always off for the holidays and you don’t have to burn vacation days to do so!
