Help Timing of interviews?

Hi all. For those of us who do not have a residence in the US, we all know that we should try to get interview dates close together to save costs of housing. However, it's a harder task than it seems. Some programs offer only extreme dates; either so early or so late. I found out that most programs do no interview between Dec 25 and Jan 10. My question here: is it advisable to schedule the all the interviews before Dec 25 or after Jan 10? Would it be wiser to skip the Christmas/New Year holidays altogether to save housing costs, traffic, and the need to stay in hotels in that period for interviews in Jan?

I'd appreciate your insight.

Thank you.
I've regained my honor [99/99].
