I think it depends on how far way. I will share with you how we do it
Christmas is noon on Christmas eve to noon on Christmas day. And noon on Christmas day to noon on Dec 26. One year i'll get the Christmas Eve/Christmas morning and the next year I get the Christmas day at noon to Dec 26 (although since he lives with me unless it's his weekend I keep him)
Thanksgiving and Easter it's every other year. He gets him the night before for these holidays until the evening of the holiday
Holidays such as Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor day is 9 to 5 every other year, alternating the holidays.
He gets him every other weekend and he also gets him two non consecutive weeks over the summer
This is the standard agreement in the county in which I live--including the Sharing Christmas day thing.
I hope this helps.
