Come on ... Christmas Eve and New Years Eve on a Saturday this year? That sucks in terms of getting time off work!

Any feel good stories by people who booked vacation days well in advance out there? smile

I know there are a lot of good companies that give lots of time off as well ...

We get the days off on Monday and Tuesday 'in lieu' of the weekend holidays.

Booked off in between Christmas and New Years as well. We are hosting the family so the extra time will be well spent.

I'm confused, when the holiday falls on the weekend, we get the weekday closest off. Friday for Saturday, Monday for Sunday.

What other days are you referring to?

After literally ten years of getting no days off other than those 2 in December (because we had a minimum staffing requirement, vacation was taken based on seniority, and I was always the newest hire--everyone hired after me was always gone by December), only now do I work for a company that shuts down between the 25th and the 1st. Not holidays, though, we only get paid for the 25th and 1st (or whatever legal observation days) and have to use vacation if we want to get paid those other days.

Just don't have to worry about coverage because everyone's out. smile
