Minor holidays and freelancing

By Katharine Swan On Monday, January 19, 2009 At 3:18 PM

As a freelance writer, I often find that I forget about minor holidays much more frequently than regularly employed people. It wasn't until my husband — who works in the financial industry — told me around noon today that I actually knew it was Martin Luther King Day.

Of course, I'm still working today — sort of. I was up until about 5:00 this morning finishing an assignment, so even though I slept in this morning, I didn't get much sleep. I'm moving a little slow today as a result, but I am still technically working!

What about my fellow freelancers? Do you remember minor holidays, and do you work on days like today?
