A spokesman for Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin says the governor has no plans to officially declare a state holiday for the Friday after Christmas.

Christmas falls on a Thursday this year. Tomblin spokesman Chris Stadelman tells the Charleston Daily Mail that state employees who want to take off Dec. 26 should contact their supervisors.

Stadelman says Tomblin in previous years has not declared the days following Christmas as state holidays.

The Friday after Thanksgiving has been a state holiday since legislation was enacted in 2006.
