    It's quiet mostly during the holidays at work. Lots of the patients get discharged, transferred out of the ICU, etc. It's not so bad, especially since you get holiday pay. My hospital also gives you a free turkey meal! We also have a holiday party and everyone brings treats in. I work days/evenings 7am-7pm, so I still get to go home and spend time with my family for the evening.

    We don't get paid extra for working holidays, so that's not an incentive. That aside, I don't mind working them. Biggest plus? No upper management.

    I have no problem working holidays. Guess it's because small kids are no longer an issue. Once you get off the major holiday "merry" go round, you'll be so happy not to decorate and cook and have family over (if you can get away with it - varies year to year) that you will be thrilled to not even decorate! I promise. And I used to like to cook, etc. when I was in my 20's.

    I've been lucky to fly under the radar for a while now for xmas/thanksgiving ...till it was noticed. Now I have to do the bird this year. Not happy about it. If there is an opportunity to work, I'll do it to get out of dinner

    We don't get holiday pay so that makes it suck.
