Everyone I know is off work today, I work 5pm - 930pm. I am happy I can relax, and watch TV. I will get ready about 430p, then drive to work. I get the next two days off afterwards. I thought today was like any other day, but everyone is saying it is a holiday.

@ricki_911 There are some privileges of getting old. Especially today, when there is a major snowstorm going on and here I am just lazying around and having fun. I do feel a little guilty when I think of my fellow citizens. Maybe I'll watch a winter movie on my new Netflix just to get into the spirit but hopefully we don't lose power as that will be unpleasant for everyone..

@1hopefulman I would love not to have to worry about driving in it. You had your share of bad weather driving I am sure. I am planning one of those days sitting on MYLot, Swagbucks and Netflix. What are you going to watch?. It seems rather warm outside, so I don't think we will get anymore snow/ freezing rain.

@ricki_911 I am watching "The Imitation Games" and am taking a break as I think of what is happening in the movie. I like it and so I am not rushing to finish in one sitting. Here it is still snowing heavily.

What kind of holiday would that be? Today is no holiday. It's possible, however, that some firms have given their staff some days off until the end of the year.

I didn't think it was a holiday, and was scratching my head.
