Do you work on Christmas Day?

My dad was an academic and he used to work over all the holidays. I am determined I am not going to do this, but I have colleagues in my department who seem to work even on Christmas Day.

I have another colleague in a different department who says she takes a "comfort article" on holiday with her. I think that's about my speed - pretending I might do some work, but nothing huge!

I don't 'work' outside of (longish) working hours. But it's the thinking I can't get away from! Forum Index -> Personal life
