バカンス or ホリデー・シーズン

「さあ、バカンスです(Sa bakansu desu)」or「ホリデー・シ−ズンがきました(horidei sizun ga kimashita)」is my choice for “Holidays are here.” 「バカンス(orig. from French)」and「ホリデー・シーズン」are interchangeably used. The word 「ホリデー(holiday)」 is widely accepted, but is rarely used independently in practical Japanese, while dictionaries give 休暇(kyuka)、休日(kyujitsu) or休み(yasumi) to the word. Therefore we generally make it a noun compound suffixed by 「シーズン(season)」. An alternative for “holidays” can be 「連休(renkyu: consecutive holidays)」.
