Felices Pascuas


Explanation:
"Felices Fiestas" is fine, but it can be used for any festivity (Independance Day, Thanksgiving, etc.) "Felices Pascuas" is used for festivies which in some way carry a religious connotation ... Christmas is the most common, after which is also Easter, Passover, Pentecost, etc.

Que tengas FELICES VACACIONES!


Explanation:
Happy Holidays! can be understood as "Felices Pascuas" "Feliz día de Acción de Gracias" or "Felices Fiestas" if you consider it in general but I think that you have words to say that.
So I would say:
"Qué tengas felices vaciones"

Good luck!

Felices Vacaciones


Explanation:
It really depends on the context. Holidays in English may be used for a period during which you are not working because you decided or because there's a festivity. (Eastern, Christmas or the Independence Day) So , if you are referring to one of those , refer to the appropiate one (Feliz Navidad, Felices Fiestas -New Year included- )BUt in general, in Spanish we use that term when we stay away home and rest

Explanation:
If you mean the Christmas holidays, then it is: FELIZ NAVIDAD or FELICES FIESTAS (also "felices pascuas" in South America, but unusual in Spain)

If you mean any other holiday, then FELICES VACACIONES or QUE TENGAS UNAS BUENAS VACACIONES
