One may also ask, how many days off do you get for Christmas?

Let's break it down for you. This year, Christmas Day (December 25) falls on a Wednesday, meaning Boxing Day (December 26) and New Years Day (January 1) are on a Thursday and the following Wednesday. So if your employer doesn't require you to work bank holidays, you'll automatically get those three days off.

What happens if Christmas Day falls on my day off?

Yes, if the holiday falls on a rest day, the next working day is a paid holiday. If the holiday falls on a non-working day or off day, the employer may decide to compensate the employee with an extra day's pay in lieu of that holiday or give the employee another day off as a holiday.
