So, how many days are you taking off for Christmas/New Years?

I'm taking off Christmas Day/Day after Christmas and New Years Day/Day after New Years, and working the rest of the days. What about you? How many days are you taking off, including Holidays, Weekends, etc?

Next wednesday-Friday off, then the week of new Years..Thursday and Friday off.

It is nice that Holidays fall on saturdays this year..so most people automatically get those fridays off. Good on my PTO balance.

No job currently, so my schedule is pretty open for the holiday season.

I get a paid company shutdown for the holidays, starting on the 24th. Work resumes on the Monday after New Years.

Thursday and Friday are holidays for each of the next 2 weeks, so 8 days, including weekends. I'm working the other days.

I work at a movie theater and I'm not a Christian, so I get zero days off. If I'm lucky I'll open on December 31st and have January 1st as a regular day off.

Re: So, how many days are you taking off for Christmas/New Years?

I have a home-based computer repair business, pretty much work 7 days a week as needed, 9am to 7pm, if a call comes in I'm definitely not going to ignore anyone in need of help. If I have computers to work on I may tinker around with them a bit on Christmas Day and New Years Day. Neither my wife nor I are drinkers, nor are either of us wrapped up in religion, so those aspects of the holidays don't apply. Her relatives are in Texas, mine have their own families to take care of so it's just us, and whatever happens.....happens. -kd5-

Off from Dec. 17 to Jan. 3.

This on the heels of an entire week off for Thanksgiving, and four days for Veteran's Day.

None, not including the Friday holidays for both (which are ideally situated). I like working around this time - nobody around to bother me.

My work schedule's a bit wonky this week because of the holiday. I work Thursday-Sunday and have Monday off. Then, I'll work Tuesday-Friday before having Saturday off. It's nice to not have 6 straight days before my next day off, as is the norm.

Re: So, how many days are you taking off for Christmas/New Years?

Friday Christmas Eve and Monday after New Years are our company holidays [yes it's weird, I assume there's a reason for it but I don't know what.]
I'm taking next Wed and Thur as vacation, Fri as holiday, the next Wed Thu Fri as vacation, then the Monday as the holiday.
My company just changed their vacation time policy so I'm trying to burn up some banked hours.
Mondays are tough for me to take off, it can be done but I didn't want to do it this time, plus since most other folks take the whole week, I can get stuff done.

I'm off on Christmas Eve, Christmas, and the day after...just the way the schedule falls this year. Then, I'm taking off the next two days after that to go to New Orleans for a quick getaway. Can't wait to get a few days off work.

Re: So, how many days are you taking off for Christmas/New Years?

I'll be done with finals on the 21st, done with work on the 22nd, have the 23rd to myself, then heading down to my parents with my wife for the 24th-26th. I'll have two days to myself while my wife has to go back to work, then she and I are going on our first-ever all-inclusive trip to Cancun on December 29 - January 4. Never done anything like that before and we're pretty excited; we saved and saved and saved and have decided to indulge because it's been a tough year in some ways and a break like this is going to be a good thing indeed. I go back to work on January 5 part-time for a month and then resume full-time work and classes at the beginning of February or so.

Re: So, how many days are you taking off for Christmas/New Years?

I will be off a total of 5 days, a few days before christmas and the monday after new years. I working the week in-between because my in-laws will be in town from the night of the 27th to the morning of the 31st. I think I might actually work 12 hour days then

Was planning on a week off, but a deadline has become hard to meet, so zero. I'll take it off in January instead.
