Luckily, Fridays are one of my most flexible days, so I can come in later if I desire (it doesn't hurt that I make the schedule!).

We "use" to have to request it off and either take our vacation time off or have it unpaid. But since sooo many people were wanting it off, mainly just to spend with family, they decided to give it to us paid. :) so its part of our holiday pay. :D

My company is open BF (and Christmas Eve) so I use vacation days for both. Luckily, being the only woman in an IT dept full of men, it's common knowledge that I WILL NOT be in so don't even ask! Last year I swung by the office after shopping all my big stores first and dropped off a Christmas tree I picked up really cheap. They put up with me as I put up with them every other day of the year! :)

Luckily, it's a paid holiday for me this year. If it hadn't been, I would have requested it off about 8 months ago. ;)

I'm a SAHM so no worries about having the day off. Plus DH works 4/10's so he automatically gets Friday off. He'll be home with baby while me and my best friend shop til we drop!!! So excited!! :gdthums:

I used to have off every year for black Friday...they just gave us Thanksgiving Day and the Friday afterwards. BUT this year, I don't have a job, so I guess I have Black Friday off and even Cyber Monday this year! :D

Stay at home mom. I have threatened the life of my husband's boss if he makes my husband work. Last 13 years, he's had BF off. :D

Thankfully being an insurance agent we have lengthy paid holidays so I will be glad to be getting paid to shop in the middle of the night LOL! Kara
