    Well, let's see, where do I start. Here's a list of my paid holidays.

    New Year's Day (Jan.)
    Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Jan.)
    Presidents' Day (Feb.)
    Patriots' Day (Apr.) - G-d bless Massachusetts
    Memorial Day (May)
    Independence Day (July)
    Labor Day (Sept.)
    Columbus Day (Oct.)
    Veterans Day (Nov.) - also my wedding anniversary
    Thanksgiving (Nov.)
    Day after Thanksgiving (Nov.)
    Christmas (Dec.)
    The week between Christmas and New Year's.



    Too bad I don't work for the City of Boston, which also has a paid holiday for Evacuation Day. It celebrates the day that the British evacuated Boston. Celebrated every March 17, along with St. Patrick's Day.

    President's Day next month, and then it's a hard haul toward April/May for
    17 days off in Rome and Barcelona.

    I get an extra 40 hours of float supplemented to my 80 hours vacation to cover some gov't/bank holidays that aren't standard days off with my company (MLK jr, presidents, veterans etc) that we can use whenever time allows. It's fair. Plus I get every other Friday off generally. I'll be taking a couple weeks off to spend with my new boy coming in April also.
