Happy Holidays for some; Another workday for others
While most of us are spending the day relaxing at home with our loved ones. There are some people who still have to work today.
Most gas stations are open for business and even a few fast food restaurants. Hospitals, fire departments and police departments are open as well.
"I love working holidays," said Leah Logan, Registered Nurse Mary Lanning Hospital.
The number of patients at Mary Lanning Hospital decreases on Christmas day.
"No one really wants to be in the hospital on Christmas, so we get to spend a lot more quality time with our patients and get to know them," said Logan.
Leah Logan already celebrated Christmas with her family.
"So now it's just trying to make it as special as we can for the patients so they can kind of enjoy their Christmas," said Logan.
For the nurses, doctors, police officers and firefighters working on Christmas, it's just another day on the job.
Helping take care of the community.
"As our captain always says, emergencies don't stop just because it's a holiday," said Jarred Hackler, Firefighter/EMT.
"Most holidays are pretty boring," said Officer D.J. Dramse Hastings Police.
Christmas may not be as busy as most days, but there's still a job to do.
But, there's one thing that makes it all worth it.
"The citizens are really nice to us. They bring us lots of cookies and candy and that type of stuff, we're well fed over the holidays. It's just a thank you from them to us. That's kind of cool," said Sgt. Steven Murphy, Hastings Police.
