The clocks have gone back, Halloween is over and we're now rushing headlong towards Christmas.
You may be starting to think about what time off work you will get over the the festive period.
The way Christmas falls this year we get two extra days off (if you work Monday to Friday).
Christmas Day 2016
This is because Christmas Day and New Year's Day fall on a Sunday, which means we get extra bank holidays on Tuesday, December 27 and Monday, January 2.
This means that if your boss allows it you could be off work from Friday, December 23 until Tuesday, January 3 and only use three days annual leave.
This is how it works out:
Friday, December 23 - Normal working day
Christmas Eve - Saturday
Christmas Day - Sunday
Boxing Day: Monday - Bank holiday
Tuesday, December 27- Bank holiday (carried over from Christmas Day)
Wednesday, December 28 - Normal working day
Thursday, December 29 - Normal working day
Friday, December 30 - Normal working day
New Year’s Eve - Saturday
New Year’s Day - Sunday
Monday, January 2 - Bank holiday (carried over from New Year’s Day)
Tuesday, January 3 - Normal working day
