  • In the public school district where I work, we get Thursday and Friday and have the option to take Wednesday or use it as a teacher workday. Happy Thanksgiving to all the working moms!!!! :o)

  • Technically I get both... but I will still be working because there's no one to take my on-air shift. (I work in radio during the week, TV on weekends.) I will be able to head home after I do the 9AM legal ID, but I'll have been up since 3 AM!

  • Depends on if it's my holiday to work. This year I have Thanksgiving off but I have to work Christmas. I'm a nursing assistant and nursing homes never close so I'm lucky to have a holiday off.
