I work in the office of a small machine shop & we are closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve & New Years Day...but if business is slow (which it normally is b/c most of our customers close beteween the holidays) we will close too! The years we do stay open, I usually get to leave early every day.
This year business is so slow, it doesn't look like being closed between the holidays is going to be a problem. I don't like it that we are so slow, but I would love to be off during the holidays.
Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace & goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
