Thread: Christmas closing times

    Christmas closing times

    Our local co-op is open until 10pm tonight. That's tantamount to abuse or at least being very mean to the staff.
    The local Robbie's is shut on Boxing Day, good choice.
    Enough is enough re shopping.

    What happens sur le continent ?.

    Shops and petrol stations will be open right through round here, our mussie friends will not close.

    Don't know if that's disrespectful to Christians ???

    Not so many years ago Christmas day was just another working day in Scotland , at least for country workers some office staff and possibly some factory workers got Christmas day,but the big celebrations were at New year when we got two days off and sometimes more depending on when New Year landed in the week
    In general Christmas was considered a time for kids, New year was for adults.
    Christmas for adults consisted of your Christmas dinner after your days work, and possibly going to a watch night service on Chrismas Eve for those that were religious.

    Can't remember when exactly but think it was some time in the 1980s before Christmas day became an official holiday up here, at least I never had Christmas day off before that.
    by then many were pulling sickies , and making it an official holiday was the logical choice.
    Its true that we never did much on Christmas day but you had to turn out


    There are many of course who still work Christmas day some by choice,and some because the job demands it some get the choice of either Chrismas or New Year off but not both.

    What about all the pubs, takeaways etc tonight and then the pubs, restaurants and hotels tomorrow never mind all the staff in the services (police, fire, hospital, ambulance, RNLI, vehicle breakdown etc) that will be working over the holidays and all the guys in the forces away from home.

    Wife is working tomorrow and boxing day and all new year. She is a Chef so busy time.
    Our Christmas meal will be a full fry up. That is what she has requested for when she gets home tomorrow night. She is sick of the sight of turkey dinners and the like.
