My boss just told us that we're going to have to focus over the next few months to finish a project, but it's the nearing the holiday season and I wanted to relax and spend time with my family. Should I take my vacation nonetheless?

That's a tough question. Are there slow times of the year for your team?

Family is always first in my book. You should talk to your manager though to have an open and early convo on it

Past experience speaks.. Amazon gets busier to busiest during Holiday season. Well rewarded for work done and extra hours put in. But at the expense of family life. Decisions and priorities are your choice. Consequences are your results of those choices you make. Weigh in and choose wisely

I wouldn't want you to completely miss out on the holidays with your family or anything like that, but I think it's important to find a balance and make sure you do your share of the work to help your team make it over the finish line.

If you have a history of taking time off during the holidays, then it shouldn't be a surprise to your boss, regardless of what project you have. If not, I probs wouldn't take vacation time, unless you're okay with the consequences

If you're good at your job, take the vacation and don't worry about consequences. On a reasonable team at a reasonable company, no one would begrudge you time off at the holidays. If they do, that's a great sign that you need to start looking for a new job.

Is it possible to reschedule your vacation? I think it's worth being there for your team, even for future promotion/salary raises.

Family comes first.
