Every time a holiday comes around I can hear “Uncle Paul Castain” reminding us sales people not to slack off. He’s totally right about it too.
Whenever you think it might be a bad idea to call someone or send an email because “people aren’t working”, just do it! (For example, some of the best emails I’ve sent were sent to business executives on the weekend.)
It sucks that so many of us (including your target senior executives) work all the time but if you want to do well in sales, run away from the herd and contact your prospects when your competitors have nodded off.

a) They didn’t take the whole week off
b) They didn’t mentally check out
But 3 days of admin?
