I had a floating holiday that needed scheduling, so I did that — use it or lose it. Selecting December 12 arbitrarily for the occasion, I requested the holiday. There’s a notes section, though, and it’s always dangerous to leave those unattended around me.
Notes: Feast of Ma’arrat al-Numan – During the First Crusade, Crusaders breach the town’s walls and massacre about 20,000 inhabitants on this day. After finding themselves with insufficient food, they resort to cannibalism.
I sometimes wonder what the supervisory staff thinks when they read my leave requests.
