Holiday

I don't mind the word "holiday" at all.  I like it better than vacation, as in "I'm on Christmas vacation."  Christmas holiday makes more sense.

Holiday comes from the Old English "Holy day."  Seems like only a fool would try to repress the reference to Christ in Christmas by substituting a word that means the day is HOLY.  Subscribe here to get the OED word of the day.
