Since I am stuck in 'murica for the foreseeable future (or at least until my lottery ticket wins something substantial) I don't get Boxing Day (they actually think it is to do with cleaning up the boxes the Xmas presents came in - barbarians!). I save up most of my limited vacation time for the xmas to new year period so I am off from the 21st of December until the 6th of January, yea!
Merry Christmas and a Gravy New Year to all!

My customers will be off for 2 weeks starting next week. I've already made plans to work a 2nd job (normally my 2 Saturdays a month gig) for at least 8 of those days. OK, the 2nd job is unsupervised and mostly boring so I will actually be coding for my consulting job from another office.
I'm doing exactly that, but only the 25th, 26th and 1st are officially recognized as statutory holidays. The extra days come out of my vacation pool. Which I'm ok with, since--even after this--I'm still bringing forward another 7 leftover (unused) vacation days into 2020.
I hardly take time off during the summer, so it pays off at this time of year. 2019 was unusual, in that I've burned through 4 weeks last summer, as I still had many unused days from the previous year. Otherwise I risk either losing them, or getting them paid out (which the tax man makes it not worthwhile - I need the time more than I need the extra money).
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
