This isn't really about volunteering in the traditional sense, I suppose.  -Or maybe it is.

Do you ever volunteer to work over the holidays so your coworkers can take the holidays off?  When I wasn't a SAHM, I would do this.  I actually got a lot more done when the building was quiet during those last two weeks of the year and first week of the new year.  I never minded coming in to work those weeks.  What about you?  Do you take your holiday time off or do you work and take your vacation at another time?
