    I'm working 24th and 25th 7pm to 7am. Xmas is a nonevent for me this year. Only one other person is working both days along with me. Others are working one or the other and planning their lives around their schedule. I volunteered to work those hours, because Xmas has never been a big deal to me, and there isn't much tradition or no children around. The other charge capable nurses all have kids.

    I feel for you!!! I am on Thanksgiving night (no big deal) Christmas night and New Years Eve. I requested Christmas eve off and I did get that so I'm not gonna whine. Maybe you and your family can have a special day together on the 26th?

    Christmas schedule this year is sorta...well, ok...I guess...it aint the greatest...am working my usual weekend that encompasses, Dec 21,22,23..then am scheduled 7p- 1a on the 24th...I guess I will have to get ALL of my cooking done the week before and pack my freezer...My DH does not have to work the 24th or the 25th which pizzes me off to the hilt... ...perhaps I should be happy that SOMEONE has both days off...but NO...I am not happy with this knowledge... :stone
    His children are in Michigan...we are not....my 3 daughters are coming home for the "festivities" ...and as usual, I will be in a semi-coma...
    DH just got back into nursing...I could just have a hissy fit...his biggest deal wil be trying to get me to visit his parents and I shall not waiver in my decision of 2 1/2 years ago to stay away from these 2 toxic people...they are EVIL, EVIL, EVIL...

    Working Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, New Years Eve and New Year's Day night this year. (I volunteered for this as I'm a traveler, no small kids, and don't really want to go out on New Years) (hoping for a New Year baby on our unit - that's fun!). Besides building up good will for when I want off, I'll have all that holiday pay for the after Christmas sales!
