How Do You Handle Your Holiday Trading Schedule?

I am creating this poll because of a never ending conversation I have with a friend. Thought it would be interesting to see what the majority of traders are doing. Especially since most of our traders have less than 10 years experience here.

I stop a few days before Christmas and start a couple days after the new year but am more cautious until the middle of January.

I am curious to know, what is the need for caution at the beginning of the year? Is it simply because everyone is coming back from Holiday and resuming their trades or is because of some other market factor?

Volume is lower consequently easier to manipulate.

Okay, so while others are not back in swing of trading just yet and companies are still closed, the market can be manipulated easier by the less number of people trading, making things more volatile?
