I normally get stuck working every single holiday. It really stinks! I've worked every holiday at my job since i've been there.
The ONLY one i will have off so far this year is Christmas day...thankfully! My boss has offered to work it so i can have a holiday off work to spend with my family. I'm really happy about that. The only thing that stinks though is Colin is a police officer so he works 6 days on and has 3 off...his off days rotate weekly, so i'm not sure if he's going to be off to spend Christmas day with us or not. I'm hoping he will be though! We both work for the city (i work for animal control). Most city employees (police, AC,fire,dispatchers,emt/etc) get stuck working on the holidays-because as we all know, emergencies don't sleep and animals always need food/water. This year i'm planning to make some yummy treats for him to take to his coworkers (mine will be off except my boss) so that it's not as bad. I've really been encouraging my family/friends to keep their local fire house/police dpts in mind during the holidays and do something nice for them (most of the time they LOVE to get food/treats!)
