The Ghosts (good ones) of Christmas
Friday - 12/24/2010, 4:00am EST
That's because one of my Jewish colleagues would invariably ask me if I wanted to trade shifts. Even if he, or she, had a nice 10 to 7 p.m. gig and I had the 6 p.m. to 3 a.m. shift. Some of them weren't particularly religious. But they were are all nice. And considerate.
I think of that every Christmas, and it gives me extra appreciation for folks who are required to work today, either because of their jobs/dedication, or because they are covering a gap for somebody for whatever reason.
So if you are on duty today, for whatever reason. Thanks. Many of us do understand and appreciate it. And if you are off like (finally) me. Enjoy yourself.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Safe New Year.
And stay tuned because 2011 is going to be a walk on the wild side.
