President Obama just found the perfect solution to soften the blow of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
He handed down an executive order to make December 26, b.k.a. the deflating day after Christmas a federal holiday.
Reports The Washington Post:
President Obama, a.k.a. the boss-in-chief, decided to give federal employees a holiday present a little early. He issued an executive order Friday giving them the day after Christmas off.
He issued an executive order Friday giving them the day after Christmas off.
“All executive branch departments and agencies of the Federal Government shall be closed and their employees excused from duty on Friday, December 26, 2014, the day after Christmas Day,” the order says. Exceptions may be made “for reasons of national security, defense, or other public need.”
It appears a petition championing the idea worked. The petition was brought forth by the continuous government shutdowns, pay freezes and furloughs in attempts to reenergize the moral in the federal workplace.
