I get 20 plus bank holiday but I have to save 3 days for Christmas shutdown so all in all I can only choose 17 of the days I get off. Not great.

England & Wales get 8.
Scotland get 9 (they also get 2nd Jan & St Andrews day but not Easter Monday).
Northern Ireland get 10 (they also get St Patricks Day & Battle of the Boyne day).

Our work opens everyday except weekends and bank holidays so I can take my 30 days anytime I want. Whereas my daughter and hubby have to save however many days are required for Xmas as their business closes. So to me that is NOT annual leave just making it sound like it. So like I can say Ill work Xmas because I want to take my holidays at this time - my daughter cant go that as the works close. They just make us sound like you gave a good allowance when actually you dont because if you have say 24 days but you need 4 of them because they are closed you actually only get 20 days.
It's perfectly reasonable to do this as long as you get at leastv5.6 weeks.

Most people would be happy to have Christmas off every year to be with family

It is perfectly legal and reasonable for a business to stipulate when holidays are taken. Some will not have work available at Christmas, so why should they pay people to sit around doing nothing.

I have always worked in multinationals and there has never been this rule, however I was recently offered a job at a local family owned firm in the manufacturing sector. The job offer included the statement that I would need to use annual leave between Christmas and New Year. It was up to me to decide if this was acceptable to me or not, it was part of the deal.

In Scotland St Andrews day is not a public holiday. It was designated a bank holiday in 2006 but banks don't have to take it. The schools take it but the likes of NHS don't.

So true
I have only had the whole of the period between Xmas and new year off once in my working life
I am so jealous of people who can within reason take time off when they want
Using annual leave productively between my self ( cant have first 10 days of any month . Cant have more than a long weekend October , cant have January , and my wife ( school hols only ) and my DD - retail so cant have Xmas , must do x bank hols is almost impossible

We get 10 in the IOM too - the English ones plus Senior Race Day (a Friday in June, when the Senior TT is held) and Tynwald Day (5th July or closest working day, our national day).
