Good Friday

I'm surprised by how many of you guys are saying that you have a long weekend. Until this job (working at a Catholic University) I never heard of people having Good Friday off. Hell, I use to work on Easter. So I'm just curious, how many of you people are lucky like me?

I do not have any time off, but I am way jealous of the peeps that work in my company's corporate HQ in Iceland. They get Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Monday off. Nice long weekend.

Strictly speaking, as I live in the UK, Good Friday is one of the two days of the year where I cannot be made to work. However I work in a shop and we're open normal hours today (not even the usual restricted bank holiday hours) so I still have to be there. I *could* refuse, no probs from head office, but it'd make it a complete hassle for my manager so I can't be bothered to!

I have it "off" from my regular job, but have been working on my companion job. Generally speaking, it's counted as a holiday here.
