No, I'm a nurse, so we have to take it in turns each year as to who works what - could have been worse, my late shift is from 1pm til 9pm - the day gone !

At any rate, no, don't have to work on Xmas now that I'm in grad school, but when I was working I had the day off, it being a Federal holiday and all.
