Holidays in AM

How are holidays treated for juniors in AM? Always been curious what it's like given the markets are typically open beside the actual day of the Holiday. Mostly curious about Thanksgiving and Christmas/NYE. In IB, typically the half week of Thanksgiving was off and the two weeks for Christmas / NYE were off. These holidays weren't officially off, but they were really quiet unless you were out on an unlucky staffing. What is the general sentiment in AM? Are you allowed to work remotely so you can travel home? Do you just work market hours those weeks?

From an AM internship I had, the analyst 100% was able to work from home without complaint. I was actually quite surprised how much he was off. Given the seniors on our team are great, chill people, but Atleast in my experience it was not a problem.
