Alabama Governor Grants Extra Holidays

Alabama Governor Grants Extra Holidays

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Gov. Robert Bentley is giving state workers extra holidays on the Friday after Thanksgiving and on Christmas Eve. 


Bentley announced the days off on Tuesday in a letter to state department directors and a video message to state employees that was posted on YouTube.

Alabama governors have traditionally granted the extra days in addition to the 13 holidays set by state law. Bentley says he's giving the extra days off to show state employees how much he values their service and to allow them to celebrate with family and friends during Thanksgiving and Christmas.

In the video message, Bentley said, "I wish you a warm and happy holiday season."
