ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

After speaking to a couple of people who have worked almost every Christmas, they say it's something they feel is a positive thing and are happy to be able to give back to the community during a very special time.

For those like Ned Adkins, he's the district manager of Waffle House in the Albany area and hasn't had Christmas Day off in the last 4 years. He says he doesn't mind because it's his customers and associates that make the holidays better.

"I mean they're great on the holidays, They understand that we're working on the holidays, too. They come in and give Christmas gifts and Christmas cards to our associates, they really take care them when they come here."

Adkins says Christmas morning is their busiest and they prepare in advance to tackle the big crowds.

Adkins isn't the only one working tomorrow, all emergency responders will be on call. Albany fire chief Kelly Harcrow says it comes with the job and somebody has got to it.
