    I’ll be working Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year's day and many other holidays and it doesn’t bother me because I’m single and young. I’ll give the men and women who have kids the day off to spend time with them. This is my first time working Christmas and probably not my last. Many Christmas Days I would wake up and my father would not be home because he was working, but when he came home it made the day so much better. I’ll gladly work knowing that some child will wake up and their parents will be home to see their big, glowing smile.

    Merry Christmas. And to all of you working I’ll be there with you in our celebration of the holidays will performing our jobs.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    Thank you Eric, that jogged the old memory. Volunteer at a homeless shelter offering a smile and a warm word and listen without listening, expecially when you walk around with a pot of freshly brewed coffee the intelligence you can pick up is priceless. You are volunteering and doing your job at the same time.
    Bless you Eric!
    Enjoy the day,
    Bill

    My first job was in a mill. I was working 7-3 on Christmas and was asked to do a double so another could be home. I said yes and the 3-11 Forman came up to me at 1730 with my time card signed out for 11. I wished him well, and was home in time for desert.

    Growing up I am used to having my family work on Chirstmas day.
    My Mom volunteered to help our set up church services on Christmas
    day at the Methodist Church, and my dad was a reporter for the Boston
    Herald. Newspapers don't shut down on Christsmas day.

    ***Foot note...My dad told me that one Christsmas morning the Boston
    Police received a call of a body floating in the Fort Point Channel. The
    body had been water for some time. My Dad had to report this,
    and take pictures of the body. Not a pretty site on Christmas day.

    I am single, working 0800-1800 Christmas Eve, and 0700-1500 on Christmas Day, I'll eat Christmas Dinner with my father before he goes to sleep @1800 on Christmas Day for his 2400-0800 shift. I'm just glad all our Married Officers will get to see their loved ones over the Holidays. Thank you Copelandamuffy for the Thanks.

    Here I am working overnight on Friday. As usual I left most of my shopping to do Saturday. Friday & Saturday are supposed to be my days off but 2 hours before his shift one of my guys calls & says his girlfriend is sick, he's taking her to the hospital. I don't want to be Scrouge but I am not happy. It is not his kid. He is not a Doctor. He knows how small of a department we have & how hard it is to get replacements.......

    I will have both the fortunate and unfortunate role of working at the mall security and as an EMT these shifts:

    Christmas Eve: M/S- 1100-2030
    EMS- 0000-1200 (Christmas Day)

    New Years Eve: M/S- 1000-1900
    EMS- 0000-1200

    So any of you who would like to join me in a drink to celebrate Christmas and the New Year with me can feel free to grab a cold one on the house and enjoy our own company.

    I have had my wife on more than one occasion stop by the Gatehouse and
    she and I had Christmas dinner togther.Since my wife works for the
    same contract Security Guard company as I do, managment is
    flexiable to this. Especially when I volunteered to work Christmas day.

    GCMC, when single and overseas with the USAF, I and many other single folks pulled tours on Christmas and New Years Day, so the married folks on accompanied tours could be with their families. A residual benefit was being at work which took the sting out of being away from your family at these times and being away from the United States.
    Enjoy the day,
    Bill
