    There was nothing wrong with saying "during" in the first place. Your example is rather wordy - "I would like to request that you grant me...." - you don't need to say so much.

    Dear Sir

    I would like to request 10 days' leave during the Christmas period.

    OR

    Dear Sir

    Please authorise 10 days' leave for me during the Christmas period.
