We get Thanksgiving and the day after as holidays. We get 12/23-1/1 off for Christmas - 6 holidays and 2 mandatory leave days. Effectually it is 12 days in a row off! WOOT!

"How much time do you/SO get off for the holidays?" ------- Years ago I made clear to dh that I will not work between Christmas and New Year. He finds that very odd, but has learned to accept it.

My husband isn't taking a Thanksigivng break but he'll take some time off around the holidays, We may do NYC. The kids have a pretty long Winter break actualy, they are off from the 20th of Dec to January 6, Woot! I think a part of that is b/c of where both holidays fall, Kind of silly to return to school Thursday or Friday then break again for the weekend, Good call by our district,  Lol.

We are pretty lucky. There are no classes the entire week of Thanksgiving, then I have to have my fall semester grades in on Decrmber 16th and don't teach again until January 22nd. There is much to do in between that time; for instance graduate admissions season begins in earnest with the deadline of January 10th, and I have to have the admissions report finalized within a month after that, including up to seven fellowship nomination packages.

We both have a 4 day weekend for Thanksgiving.

His office closes  from Christmas Day until Jan 2. Usually shut down early Christmas Eve.

My last workday of the year will be Dec 20th.  It was already going to work out that way because of how much paid time off I have left  but I found out yesterday that we are going to be closed all of Christmas week.
