Great big supermarkets don't care about family time they jus want to rake in the money

Shop staff should be able to celebrate Christmas with time off the same as those who work in offices and banks or other businesses who allow staff the time with their families

Retail staff need a Christmas as well. There is no need to open Boxing Day we need to make Boxing Day so retail workers can spend more time with their family and friends. Whilst the staff are working where are the greedy fat cats who will want to open? Sat at home all nice and cosy with their families.

Having been a retail worker Christmas doesn't feel like Christmas when you only have 1 day off. Working xmas eve and boxing day doesn't allow you to relax, enjoy your own family (often your own children) and you can't go away to spend the time with family or enjoy walks. Its a family time of year. If people want to shop then keep the online option available but shops should be closed for Christmas day and Boxing day.

No restaurant's or shops should be open from christmas eve till tg
the new year. All families should be together. Christmas is for a time for celebrating and not for working. Lets get shops and restaurants shut so that people can be with families.

Its a joke of a work day, let people be happy, full and lazy ONE extra day with their friends and family, you would have to be a sick freak to WANT thousands of people to work and miss out on that personal time with loved ones. A real piece of shit like a big massive piece of shit! this should have been crushed after the very first! Boxing day deals stunt.

I’m missing out on spending time with my little boy at Christmas. This year is the first year he’ll understand it.

We need time - quality time with our families!! Family units are broken because people don’t have time.
