• I did last christmas,so i`m hoping to get this one off,but not sure yet...fingers crossed
  • I am working Christmas day!
  • I had quite a few invitations to visit different members of my wonderful family as well as my terrific friends' homes. I decided to do something productive and beneficial for others: I'm doing volunteer work at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I'm working in the hospital's Resource Center from open to close on these days: Thursday, In addition to myu regular days, I'm working November 27 through Sunday, November 30. T%HEN during the Christmas, Hannuckah and Kwaanza Holidays as well as New Year's Eve and Day, I'm working each and every day from December 22 through January 4th - open to close. I'm doing the following: Books as well as movies are being checked in and out. Making individually brewed cups of coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Monitoring the time folks are on the computers. Speaking with patients and their families. I'll be there to make the Resource Center's assets and facilities available to a combination of patients, family and staff totaling about 1500. I don't have any idea how many will actually take advantage of the facilities. BUT even if one person comes to use the facilities, I know it will be time well-invested. I KNOW EXACTLY what its like to be in the hospital over a holiday weekend: Many of the patients won't haven any visitors or very few visitors. Other than eating, going to therapy, looking at TV and sleeping, they will have little else to do. As far as I'm concerned that kind of "schedule" is totally unacceptable. I went through it. I'm doing my best to make sure others won't go through it. Thanks for asking your Q! I enjoyed answering it! VTY, Ron Berue Yes, that is my real last name!

  • my dad :
  • Not me, thankfully. Christmas Day and Christmas Eve are the only two days per year our restaurant is closed. Last year, I worked Christmas Eve, just trying to catch up on "stuff" since the end of our fiscal year is the day after Christmas. I'm planning on taking both days off this year, with the exception of coming up here both days to feed our small colony of feral cats, since we won't have any restaurant goodies for them.
  • I am not! But other members of the family do - three of my brothers are ministers - for a few years, the only way I can get to see them on Christmas day was to go to their services - so I had to coordinate all of them - one for midnight service, one for early morning and one mid morning - that was like doing a full day's work *LOL*
  • Christmas Day may be a holiday for most people but the following people may have to work as usual: (1) Police personnel on duty (2) Fire Fighters on duty (3) Hospital staff on duty (4) Petrol kiosk staff on duty (5) Restaurant staff on duty
  • Railroad trainmen hauling coal into power plants where people will be working generating electricity to run your Christmas lights and heat your fondue pot! Lots of us work all "holidays".
  • I work Christmas eve and Christmas day.
  • Most important: *Doctors, nurses, surgeons and ambulance drivers *Firefighters *Police officers
  • I did not have to this year, but I have had to in the past.
  • I always worked on Xmas Day.
  • I always worked on Christmas Day allowing the people that celebrate it to have the day off.
