Merry Christmas! President Trump Signs Executive Order Giving Federal Employees Christmas Eve Off

5.1k views

Christmas is a time to be with your family and friends while observing the miracle that was the birth of Jesus Christ. That’s why it’s important to actually take time to spend with loved ones, especially considering everyone is a little jollier this time of year.

President Donald Trump understands that, so he made signed an executive order on Tuesday giving federal employees the day off on Christmas eve. Obviously, like most people, federal employees already have Christmas day off of work. The addition of Christmas eve to their days off is a nice added touch to the season.

“All executive departments and agencies of the Federal Government shall be closed and their employees excused from duty on Monday, December 24, 2018, the day before Christmas Day,” Section 1 of the executive order read.

There is a slight caveat to the executive order. You can’t just shut down every aspect of the federal government for two straight days — or maybe you can (wink).

Here’s the exemption in the order:

Sec. 2.  The heads of executive departments and agencies may determine that certain offices and installations of their organizations, or parts thereof, must remain open and that certain employees must report for duty on December 24, 2018, for reasons of national security, defense, or other public need.

Makes sense.

I just can’t wait for the haters to come out of the woodwork and crap all over this order for Trump giving preferential treatment to people that observe Christmas.
