The holidays are coming. How should we handle the time with the kids?

Question: My husband and I separated recently. We haven’t hired attorneys yet and until we do, we are kind of making things up as we go along. The holidays are approaching and I am wondering what the standard is for dividing time with the kids. Should we flip a coin? Have one of us take Thanksgiving and the other take Christmas?
