Do You Have the Day Off as a Paid Holiday?

There are 11 federal holidays in the United States. Christmas Day is one of those days.

Government offices, organizations, businesses, and schools are closed, almost without exception. Many people visit relatives or friends and are out of town. Public transit systems do not run on their regular schedules. In general, public life closes down completely.

Since Christmas Day was on a Sunday this year the holiday is observed today — the Monday following the holiday. Do you have the day off from work. If so, are you paid for the holiday?


  1. Yes I have it off and it is a paid holiday. I get 9 paid holidays and all paid vacation days too.

  2. Yes i have today off as a paid day but the parents have off all week and I wish they would have given me the entire week off. I don't get it when parents are home why they need a nanny to come to work.
