Yes - enjoying a much deserved day off!
No - I have to work; kids are in school
I'm working, but the kids are off

Christopher Columbus was a misogynistic slave driving pig who does not deserve any recognition

    Tell me about it. That is the longest time if the year - the tail end of an overly long winter (global warming where are you?) and the start of warm weather - all without any meaningful break until summer is almost on top of you.

    We're pushing really hard to get President's Day off for next year. I also am signing a new contract with my company, and told them that I will not work on Veteran's Day.

    I am off today, but then again my business is closed every Monday. If Columbus day was on a day we are open, we would still be open.

    I'm basically retired so I (kind of) have every single day to work (or not work)as I need to or want to. Today, I'm dinking around on SH and helping my parents move to their new house later.

    I'm working and the kids would be off if in fact they were still going to school. They've all graduated and moved on.

    I always let my kids stay home on anything to do with this celebration of a serial killer day. I don't think too many countries would be happy if they had an out of area visitor come over on a cruise and then preceded to murder rape and injure the citizens of that land. So, I for one think it hideous that there is a "day" named after a serial killer. cruise preceded murder rape injure citizens land hideous serial killer
