    I had to work today AND Christmas Eve. And Thanksgiving. Would've gotten Holiday pay for working Turkey day had I not called off to watch my kid brother earlier that week.
    I also have to work tomorrow.
    As long as I work for Kroger, I will never have to worry about working Dec 25 (which is the one day out of the year Kroger is closed)

    I "worked" throughout the holidays... but it was nothing more than cleaning up the place, making sure the roads are serviceable and such.

    I used to work every holiday. Sometimes had Christmas Eve off. No longer working at a movie theatre, though! Unfortunately, not working anywhere at the moment...but I feel your pain. I used to duck out at 11:50, drive the 6 minutes to my house, kiss my wife, then drive back.

    I'm having drinks, but I'm still at home on the computer. So good and bad.
