but that would have been his last day before the holiday if he hadn't quit.
Expert:  Debra replied 8 months ago.

He is not entitled to holiday pay.

He has to be working on the last day before the holidays and the first day after.

He has decided not to work on the first day after by quitting.

So he is not entitled to be paid for Christmas.

Does that fully answer your question?
