Working on Christmas Eve

I'm Asking: Are You Working Today?

Clocking in on holidays is no fun, but it's a reality for many professions and jobs — especially when it comes to putting in time the day before official holidays like Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve. Have you traded in email, to-do lists, and tedious tasks for travel, last-minute shopping, spending time with the family, and general festivities today, or are you a busy bee at work?

I was fortunate enough to get both the 24th and 25th off and for that, I am very grateful. I will try to take advantage of these extra days off to get stuff I'd usually put off for later done.

Yep, had to work but we were only open until 6. There was a mad rush on catering trays...

We rotate who has to cover the lab on holidays--this year, I don't work today but I do get to work on New Year's Day and the weekend following. People get sick, even on Christmas.

I am off Xmas Eve but i got stuck working from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM on Xmas day. That's 10 HOURS. But that's retail for you.

I got stuck working a full day today and working a full day tomorrow (on Christmas)... I didn't think it would bother me - but it's just starting to hit me. I have no family close by (the closest is 8 hours away) and everyone else who took off has family all within a 30 mile area. It really sucks to get the short end of the stick. :(

Yes. In fact, I'm the only one in the office today. Boohoo. Actually, it's not so bad and I have all of my Xmas shopping and baking done. Just one more hour and I'm outta here. :) Happy Holidays!
