Are you working on Christmas Eve?

I'm sure most retail workers are, but what about office folks?
Our office is technically closed but a few of us are going in (time and 1/2) in the morning. If we didn't, (because our work is daily stuff), by Wednesday, we would have a mess on our hands!

I'm an RN and work in a hospital. I work every other holiday and Christmas is my holiday to work. I work night shift, so I will be going in on Christmas Eve at 11, but techincally I work Christmas - so the holiday will fall into Christmas. I like the fact then that I will be home that evening, go to church and then be home Christmas morning to watch my kids open gifts and then I will just stay up the rest of the day - I took off Christmas night.

I work at a church so we're definitely closed on Christmas. This year I'm excited because the office will actually be closed on Christmas Eve too - that's rare.

Usually, we would have to work on Christmas Eve, unless the owner would be gracious enough to cut us loose a half day: but I don't hold my breath for that wish! This year and like any other year, if I want off, I have to use my vacation time! So, I'm off Christmas eve and the day after~

As a teacher, I can assure you we are very fortunate during the holiday season. Dec 21 is our last day, and we go back to work Jan 7.
