Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

It's annoying when you stand in front of a store or restaurant and the store (normally open at this time) is closed for holidays.

Therefore I want to tag this shop holidays. But which is the best way to do this?

with best regards Thomas G.M. Mainka

The opening hours tag specification includes syntax to specify longer periods when a shop is closed. See http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:opening_hours

Sorry, sometimes I have problems to see the forest because of all the trees, but I guess you mean the "off" tag in the opening_hours. (The samples in this direction are without explanation and therefore I have overread this tag and the "open" and "close" tags - without sample - were looking wrong for me.)

Thank you for your answer (and if I'm wrong with my guess, please korrect me).

Yes you will need to use the off modifier.
