do you take extra time off at the holidays?

  • our company announced last week that we are closed on monday! very exciting since i had already decided to take friday off - now i have 5 days in a row! it's like getting a week of vacation for the cost of 1 day!

    i was wondering, do any of you guys get the whole week off or take off? anyone close down for the week between christmas and new years?

  • I used to work somewhere that closed down for the week between Christmas and New Year's, and I think it's really smart. So many people want to be off then - or need to be, because their kids are out of school - that not much gets done anyway. On the flip side, if you are working, you can get a lot done because no one bothers you!

    My office is closed Christmas Day and New Year's Day, and I'm taking off Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve, and January 2. I'm working half-days for the three days after Christmas. I'm looking forward to the extended weekends!
