    Who takes time off at Xmas? I usually work Xmas eve and don't go back until the first weekday after New Year's Day which will be Monday the 4th this year so a nice 10 consecutive days off. I figure the custies don't really want you banging down the door in the holidays asking them for money when they're already skint!

    I'm taking the second week of December off to take the Mrs and kids to Center Parcs. I'll probably work up to Xmas eve and then do a bit on the 28th, 29th and 30th and go back to work properly on the 4th January.

    I've never been away for Xmas! I can't imagine the sun shining on Xmas day to be honest! Lucky you though could think of worse things to be doing! Won't catch me grafting round Xmas though misses and kids would hang me I think if I don't hang myself first! Lol

    I get too restless with more than a few days off so the couple of days work in the middle will keep me sane

    I'll be working christmas eve, and then completely off until the 4th this year. Fed up of messing about working while everyone else is relaxing and enjoying themselves, done it too many years now. Going to enjoy it.
    One thing I have learned from previous years is thta if working on christmas eve, I book a big job in as the traffic is too bad around here to mess about traveling about for small amounts. So pressure washing or large house gutters fit the bill.
