sometimes we do, but usually it's pretty chill. reasonable people here plan for the fact that lots of people take extra time off, and we have a plant shutdown between christmas and new year's.

I wish my company did that. Its very difficult for me to take vacation in the months of December or January . I always have vacation left over but end up just carrying it over.

we close shop Christmas week. so we either take it unpaid or use PTO. I guess its kind of nice to have it off every year.

we also don't have many holidays during the year, so it evens out. I like having a long break vs. more single days off, but the stretch between new year's and memorial day without a day off is rough. I usually plan a vacation during that stretch.

Latitude is very relative.
I love this map, projecting US cities over a map of Europe and vice versa. Yes, this is accurate.
It puts my birthplace (let's just say Amsterdam) well into Canada, and Denver in the balmy south of Italy. Crazy.
