Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel periods of the year, with millions of Americans loading up and visiting family and friends to break bread and, well, give thanks. But we know that lawyers have very little time to spare.
This made us wonder about your plans this week.
So tell us ...
Will you and your co-workers take a full four-day weekend? Or will you be booting up and working the day after (or day of) the Thanksgiving holiday?

Read last week's question and handful of answers about law firm holiday parties.
Our favorite answer from last week:
Posted by CR: "Our small firm will give bonuses to associates and staff this year that are slightly more than last year. We also have not laid off any of our RE staff, even though the RE work has plummeted. After much discussion, we agreed that the partners could 'take the hit,' income wise, to avoid more economic harm to our employees than they’ve already suffered at the hands of this economy. We hope we will be able to do the same next year, but it’s anybody’s guess at this point."
