When are you having a day off?

A day off

We don’t normally say that someone has a ‘free day’ as in German. We say that ‘he or she has got the day off‘. That means that he/she doesn’t have to work on that day.

Two other example sentences:
I’m going to take a day off to visit a former colleague of mine.
Shall we take a day off tomorrow to work in the garden?
