Today I have heard a sentence:

Today it's being a holiday what are you doing up there?

Does it mean:

Although it's a holiday, you're so busy.

Is it correct to say in this context?

Thank you.


You apparently understood the meaning correctly, but there should be no it's in that sentence; and a comma would make it clearer:

Today being a holiday, what are you doing up there?

To grammarians the first phrase is an absolute construction; see explanation and more examples there.
