Hi, just wondering if anyone else is working on the big day? I'm working Boxing Day as well 12 hour shifts...I'm keeping the Airport going so that all the lucky people can escape......:D Unfortunately this means no drinks until the 29th...:( But on the brightside there is no Christmas stress....

A HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL...

Have done in the past, wouldn't again if I could help it now that I have kids as you don't get many Christmases that they actually believe in it to start missing them for a few extra pennies. I feel sorry for those that don't have a choice in the matter.

Technically, yes. But as my job is looking after the kids I don't think I'll be missing the fun :D

Office party on friday..then back on the 2nd....looking forward to the break.,only had a couple of long weekends this year as hol....:)
 
Being a shift worker, I have to work either Christmas or New Year (no choice - it alternates) and this year, it's Christmas...
Working nights Christmas Eve, which,for those of you that have ever worked shifts, will know that that's Crimbo day written off. I'm then working days Boxing day (with a 0530 start - which means early to bed Crimbo day...) and the same timings the 27th.

Lucky enough to then be off until Jan 2nd when I'm back on nights and into my regular shift pattern.
