Question Time off over New Year

With my employer we get the 1st of Jan and the 2nd of Jan off. Is this normal, or are they just being generous?

New Year's Day and the 2nd of January are statutory holidays. You should also be getting 21 January off as that's Wellington's anniversary day.

Thanks all. I think it's a great idea, very practical, and am glad to know it's nationwide. Just couldn't find reference to it being a statutory holiday, so ta.
