    1) What days do you get off from work/school? Christmas Eve, New Years Eve, and January 3rd

    2) Are you taking any additional time off/vacation time?  Nope... our offices are empty the next two weeks..and, while boring, it is pretty much like having the day off anyway.

    3) Are you going anywhere? Having anyone come visit?   Going to III Forks with DH's family on Christmas Eve, and going to do Christmas Day with my family.  (all are semi-local)

    ETA:  I almost forgot! We also have half days on the 23rd and 30th. :)

    1) What days do you get off from work/school? I get Dec 24 - Jan 3 from work.

    2) Are you taking any additional time off/vacation time?I will do my best to work a few hours extra ahead so that I can take off the Dec. 23. I already used up all my vacation with the wedding and honeymoon.

    3) Are you going anywhere? Having anyone come visit? We were planning on going on a trip to California but with Siavash's work schedule, it didn't work out.

    1) What days do you get off from work/school? Christmas Eve... But because Christmas and New Year's Day is on a Weekend, they gave us floating holidays

    2) Are you taking any additional time off/vacation time?
    Yep.  Whatever I have left over.  Which means I go home on Monday, December 20th and don't come back until Jan 3rd.  Yay!

    3) Are you going anywhere? Having anyone come visit?
    I'm going home.  To Dallas.  Finally.  Our families are mostly in Dallas so I'll get to see everyone and go shopping!

    I get the 24th-Jan. 2nd off.  Back to work on the 3rd.

    2) Are you taking any additional time off/vacation time?
    Nope.

    3) Are you going anywhere? Having anyone come visit?
    This was an AW yesterday that I forgot!  We are staying HOME this year!!  I'm extremely excited about this.  I've offered to host my grandparents and that is it- don't know if they will come or not.  We are having a g2g for games and drinks after Christmas but no one will probably end up coming.

    1) What days do you get off from work/school? Only get the 24th since Christmas and New Years are on Saturday.

    2) Are you taking any additional time off/vacation time? I'm taking the 27th off  to spend with FI. Not sure what will do.. maybe dinner at la Joya....

    3) Are you going anywhere? Having anyone come visit? I normally go to mexico for 2-3 weeks during the holidays but since we are saving for the wedding I will be here. No family of mine is coming :(  and FI's family is around the area so we'll just go to visit them on Christmas.

    1) What days do you get off from work/school?  The office will close early on the 23rd, and reopen on Jan. 4th

    2) Are you taking any additional time off/vacation time?  We aren't supposed to, but I asked if I could take the full day on the 23rd, and my manager doesn't like to say no in person, so I'm off that day too.  And, I had today and last Friday off, because our vacation is use-it-or-lose-it.

    3) Are you going anywhere? Having anyone come visit?  We'll go to my hometown (only 2 hours away) for Christmas weekend - we always do Christmas morning at my parent's house, and then lunch with his mom about 30 minutes away.  I'm pretty excited because we aren't going on to Houston to visit with all his siblings... I like them, but I don't like driving that much!
