This is a very appropriate question for this time of year.
I wholeheartedly agree with keeping the time the same when some
resources go missing for some amount of time.
However, in the case of Thanksgiving I counted ten working days (we do
two week sprints), skipping over Thanksgiving. I didn't count the
days off. This kept our rhythm the same: we still had a ten day sprint.
Next week I'll only have 1 person on the team at work. To not skip
that week would have meant to, effectively, have a five day sprint.
So I just skipped over that week and started counting again on the
third of Jan. Now everything is familiar in terms of the time box.
