Usage of for and during

0

Where are you going for the holidays?

It's common to give cash to parents for family holidays.

 

I think During is used with events, so for should be during,  shouldn't it? And is for used with numbers like 'stay for two days'?

 

Where are you going during the holidays?

 

It's common to give cash to parents during family holidays.

 

Or is there a meaning difference between them? What do you native English speakers think?

Thank you so much as always for your help.
