Reddit Will Now Be Closed On Holidays Starting This Thanksgiving



The self proclaimed “front page of the internet” Reddit message board announced earlier this week that it will now close on all Holidays. Reddit CEO Steve Huffman says that he just thinks that everything, including the internet, should be closed on Holidays. “I saw some posts about how many people have to work on holidays and I realized that if reddit is open on holidays someone has to work. So I decided we’ll just close on Holidays.”

Some reddit users are not happy about the announcement stating that they live in the UK, AU or other parts of the world so their holidays are not represented. One user pointed out that if reddit wants to be international they’ll have to close almost every day because there’s a holiday “basically like every day.” Huffman responded by saying “n00b.”
