Discussion: Your Christmas/Holiday Plans

Seeing as I celebrate Christmas and this is the last discussion post before Christmas I thought we’d have a fun discussion this week.

This Christmas I’m fortunate enough to get two weeks off because my bosses are taking a holiday down in southern Saskatchewan.  Work isn’t very busy around this time of year anyway, so all of us employees get two weeks off as well!  It’s sort of a relief considering how burned out I’ve been lately and I’m glad that my poor workaholic bosses are taking some time to take care of themselves.  They certainly deserve the time off.

Other than that, there’s not much going on for me.  I’ll be working on my second job sporadically (seeing as I’m my own boss there) but other than that I’m not having any large amount of company over.  It’ll be a quiet Christmas with my immediate family, just how I like it.

I should probably start my Christmas shopping, come to think of it.

So if you celebrate Christmas (or are getting holidays around this time) what are your plans?  Are you having company over?  Or are you like me at my previous job and working most of the holidays?

    I will be leaving wintry Chicago behind in favor of spending a week in Texas with my family. I’ll likely be eating lots I of food and watching far too many movies! Out of curiosity, what do you do as your job? I also work full time but I don’t post half as often as you do.

      Lucky you! I wish I could go somewhere warm.

      I work in an independently owned lumber yard/hardware store/building company. While I have a very official job title it basically means that I do whatever needs to be done, whenever it needs to be done. I do everything from clean the paint machine to do the ordering for our supplies. I don’t work as much in the winter, but in summer I work relatively long hours because we’re so busy. That comes from living in a booming tourist destination.

      Yeah, I’m working on my second job on a casual basis, so there’s still plenty of time for reading and such. But then again organizing the end of my reading challenge is taking up so much of my time, it feels like work! Awesome, relatively fun work, but still work.
