Boxing Day 2009

So this year it falls on a Saturday...

but everywhere I look, it is still listed as happening on Saturday....

Are stores supposed to be open on Boxing day anymore? I thought there was some big kerfuffle about that recently...

Anyway, my real question is, for the rest of us who don't work on Saturdays anyway and dont work in a store, isn't this holiday supposed to be moved to Monday? What gives...

Yeah, depends on your business.

If you would normally get Boxing Day off but don't work Saturdays, it moves to Monday.

If you normally work Saturdays, you get that day off.

Well this is exactly where this thread comes. Cause the boxing day looks like a work day to me... But then again so does easter, and family guy day.

I was about to bitch, again, but they gave me 30 & 31 off so I started feeling more like 'pick your battles, ..'
