First time having president’s day holiday in the company but still worked. I guess that’s the life of an accountant- No president’s day holiday.

Won’t happen since the markets are closed 😂

Why would a PA firm ever try to have this as a day off? Way too many looming deadlines for that.

There is no such holiday as President’s Day. There are President’s Day sales - whatever those are - but the only US holiday celebrated today is Washington’s Birthday. Hope you enjoyed it!

Wait today was a holiday, like we could have not worked and put in holiday time?

But what about Washington’s Birthday? No one gets President’s Day, not even feds.

I don’t see president day listed on the holiday schedule.

Try searching Washington’s Birthday.

K?

Unmmm, no holidays during busy season.

I’m a new associate to a T&E group, partner goes away on vacation and leaves me with a 706 to review and sign. The family is very wealthy. Decedent married for 60 years. Partner says it’s “just a DSUE election, decedent was ill for years, no assets.” Provides no records. Not even an admission the decedent owned a toothbrush. So I looked up the decedent’s home - it’s a joint asset. Partner was “surprised”, and still insists “no other assets”. I found file references to art and antiques.

After coming back from the short Thanksgiving break I’ve come to the realization that I am burnt out (or just entirely hate my job/life). I’ve been dreading work for the past 3-4 months. I’ve realized that the occasional extended weekend trips/breaks aren’t enough. I was originally planning on taking just a few days off at the EoY, but I’m going to now take 2 weeks off to completely detach. If you’ve been feeling the same way as I have, I encourage you to take as much time off as you can 🥲😪

Last week, we had a PD session about equity. It focused on inequality around holidays. Celebrating Christmas at school leaves out lots of kids who "aren't Christian," so we were told not to put up any Christmas-type decorations, not to wear holiday clothing or jewelry, not to do anything Christmas-y at all in the name of equity. Sigh. I'm sad about that. The kids used to love my colored lights and snowmen.
