President Donald Trump wrote in an executive order that all federal employees would be excused from work for a federal holiday on Monday, Dec. 24, 2018.

The executive order stipulates that department heads may ask employees to come into work on Christmas Eve “for reasons of national security, defense, or other public need.”

When Christmas Eve fell on a Monday in 2012 and 2007, past presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush issued similar orders.
