Christmas Holiday Letter

A Christmas holiday letter is written by an employee to his/her boss/employer to ask permission to proceed on leave for Christmas. Since Christmas vacation is usually long, the employee mentions that his/her leave was planned in advance. The applicant names a colleague who will take care of his/her works in their absence.

Here are some useful tips for writing Christmas holiday letter:

  1. Start by asking permission to proceed on Christmas holidays and specify dates and duration of leave.
  2. Mention that you have not availed long leave in the year or mention other reasons if any for wanting this long leave.
  3. Mention name of coworker who will handle work in your absence and furnish contact details.
  4. End by requesting permission to proceed on Christmas holidays.

Subject: Permission for Christmas Holiday

Dear Sir,

I am writing this letter to ask permission to avail twelve days leave for Christmas from 21December2013 to 02January2014. This leave is according to the leave-plan I submitted along with other employees in February this year.

Since I was under probation last year, I could not go home for Christmas holidays. After receiving intimation of my permanent recruitment in January this year, I have not availed leave even for a single day. Moreover, it has been three years since I went home for Christmas.

I will hand over my work-files and brief my co-worker Martin so that he can handle all queries in my absence.  I will leave my contact details with your office in case of any urgent requirement.

I request you to kindly grant me twelve days leave for Christmas holidays and oblige.



Thanking you,

Yours Sincerely,
