Default Do You Take Good Friday Off?

If you do, do you charge it as a paid holiday? Or w/out pay?

Closed and paid.
Last year I was open and had one kid, so I added it to my holiday list.

I was open last year and had two kids (sib set) and I found out later it was so Mom could get her nails done and do easter shopping.

CLOSED with pay this year! YAY 3 day weekend!

Closed with pay. It's a paid holiday in my contract. I used to not take it off. And then everyone would drop their kids off so they could bake pies all day. 3 day weekend can't come fast enough. It's been a LONG winter!!!!

Good Friday is a paid holiday for me. Sometimes I feel guilty for taking it off as a holiday, since it seems most companies no longer give that as a holiday to employee's. Then I just have to tell myself I don't take enough days off, and it is okay. I have not had a day off (other than weekends) since Christmas break.
I am ready for a 3 day weekend!!

Normally I would not have taken it off, but it's the last chance I get to see my daughter who lives out of state (7 hours away) before she moves 18 hours away so I decided to close for that day to go see my family.

Since it wasn't on my regular list of paid days off I will be off without pay...however I've decided I will begin taking it off WITH pay starting next year.

I don't close for it, but I don't think I've ever worked it because parents have always had off and choose to keep their kids home

I'm open. I don't think any of my parents have that off. Wish I had taken it as it is the first day of my kids Spring Break and would've been nice to have a day with just them.

No. I don't celebrate Easter, and don't Good Friday either....I can't justify taking that one off. Wish I could, but I can't.

I usually close early but this year I am not. School is in session and everyone else is working a full day so so am I.

Closed and paid =) Whoo hoo, kinda forgot about it!

I have 1 DCB that is 12 months old and comes 4 days a week (Mon, Tues, Wed & Fri)... I'm guessing they'll want to bring him Thurs so they don't have to pay for a day off. I don't allow that since it could potentially bring me over my numbers on Thursdays... but it's not going to stop them from asking.

Normally I do, closed and unpaid. However, it isn't a school holiday this year, so I'll be open.

Ditto, none of my families take the day so I am open. However this year its spring break so most of my kids won't be here (DCPs are college employees and/or students) so I'm hoping I'll end up with an extra day off!!

Closed & unpaid. Well except for my teachers kids, who pay a flat monthly rate. So, we will say closed & partially paid.

I answered no, but I am this year, but as a vacation day, I needed a day off to make a dr appt, and my husband got a new job last august and has been wanting the kids and I to come have lunch and see his new work, so I chose that day as I know quite a few of my kids parents had it off.

Yes, I take all legal holidays with pay. I need to remind today that I will not be working that day and am sure to have guilt trips laid on me y. I will not give in! I waitress as a second job n am scheduled to work on easter. Really upset over this being that I have two young kids. I need one day off. I work 11 hour days 5 days a week doing daycare. Then I work every Saturday night waitressing. Easter week I will have to work both Saturday and Sunday.
