what is the difference between I look/I am looking forward to holidays.
If you say, "I look forward to holidays" (simple present) you are saying, "I look forward to holidays in general" (all holidays) as a personal preference.
If you say, "I look forward to THE holidays", (simple present) you are specifying a certain upcoming holiday or holiday period.
If you say, "I am looking forward to THE holidays (present progressive) the meaning is the same as in the simple present (with article). The present progressive cannot be used in the first example above in which the article is omitted.
