Don't you just get the whole week off then?
Sees much better than being on a Saturday, for example, or Sunday.
I think it is fair to say that in the USA, most companies have exactly 1 day holiday for Christmas, no matter which of the 7 days of the week it is on.
Monday and Friday are good, but Sunday and Saturday are equally good.
Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday are the bad days because you get an island holiday instead of anchored to the weekend.

Which made Tuesday and Friday the best, since you could just take a half-day on Xmas Eve and make a four day weekend out of it.
Fortunately had enough time banked to take off Mon-Thur this week (and Friday should be a pretty slow day full of GEMP). But yeah, Wednesday Xmas (and New Years) is a drag.
Damn. That's garbage.
Thanks for explaining, guys.
(Was a student who always had winter break, then a teacher who had winter break, now a bum who has no job, so I tend to forget how toxic our work culture is.)
Blame the US working situation, not Christmas.
Pet peeve: US workers don't get a month+ of holiday days per year like most first world countries, so it's not easy to take the whole week of Christmas off.
