Default Do Most Take Off Veteran's Day?

I dont close for Veterans day - all my dcparents work. I do close the day after Thanksgiving..after working in Corp America for 20+ yrs I always had to FIGHT to get that day off...so that was one I added into my contract as a paid holiday

I do not take Veterans day off. I take Thanksgiving and the day after....UNpaid, my choice. 2 of my 3 parents are self employed and therefore, do not get paid Holidays.

No, but I do have lower numbers that day because of state and post office working parents.

I take off for Veterans and Thanksgiving/Day after. But, I really only take those off because I follow the university's schedule in my town...that's where all of my parents work.

I do not take Vetrans day off, I always thought of it as just a bank holiday anyway.

I do take Thanksgiving off paid, but do not take the day after. Personal choice, but the day after means nothing to me, and my Christmas shopping is always already done way before Thanksgiving anyway, and besides, you couldn't pay me to go go shopping on black friday!

I do not take Veteran's Day off, but the day after Thanksgiving is a paid Holiday, along with Thanksgiving. I know some of my parents would still bring along their children here, every single day they have off unless I close!!

I don't. Never heard of anyone taking that one off. I do however give myself 5 paid vacation days per year, up to 8 unpaid vacation days per year, 6 paid holidays (New Years, Memorial, 4th of July, Labor day, Thanksgiving, Christmas) and if that holiday falls on a Saturday, the Friday before is paid and if it falls on a Sunday, Monday that follows is paid. I also give full-time families 10 freebie days (not on any of my paid vaca or holidays) and part-time families get 6 freebie days per year. I also closed a half-hour or hour early roughly 3 times per year to attend trainings that I need to have some drive time to get to...

Don't take Veteran's Day off either but get Thanksgiving and the day after off paid. I close only if my fiance is off of work (holidays when the court is closed).

I decided to put in my contract that I am closed on Veteran's Day. My husband is in the military so I knew he would get this day off so it would be nice for us to both have a day off on a weekday (that NEVER happens)!!!! It is a required paid holiday. Plus he's deploying a few days after Veteran's day so I'm excited to have a day with him to just relax before he has to leave!
