"I'm always so busy that I've been getting to our layoff list later and later each holiday season," said CEO Thomas Bar≠naby, adding that some of his more organized executive friends get all their terminations out of the way by Thanksgiving.

Company officials added that they hoped the head start would give them a chance to actually relax and enjoy the holidays for once.
