You don't get it off because that dirty ****in Eye-tie Columbus, you get it off because next week is my Birthday.

Respect that!

Apparently we used to but they moved that holiday to the day after Thanksgiving where we get a four day weekend. I like that better.

I have that holiday off. Our company gets Columbus Day off instead of Martin Luther King Day, with the management's excuse being "to have a more even distribution of holidays throughout the year".

Just because January already has New Years' Day off.... bah.

WEAKSAUCE! on the management's part. Just lame reasoning there.

We get MLK, President's Day and Columbus Day. I think that covers the random holidays.

No, but we got an extra day off for X-Mas and Thanksgiving instead. Nice trade in by book.

Columbus was a %^$%^$$^$^$&$&$&#

Leif Eriksson beat Columbus by 400+ yrs to modern day America.

I will never celebrate Columbus day..but thankfully Leif Eriksson day is also on the 9th

Another government worker here. I took today off, Monday's already a holiday, so four day weekend FTW.

We always get the day after T'giving off and this year we get the day after Christmas off too. I love it when holidays fall right before/after a weekend to make a little vacation w/o having to take days off.
