Give more quitting notice during the holidays?

I'm likely going to be able to accept a new job (Yes, no resigning until I have a written offer, I know) but I am concerned about giving only 2 weeks notice during the holidays. For example, if I resigned 12/17 and my last day is 1/31, no one will be working for most of those two weeks. I supervise 6-7 other social workers and an intern; if I leave during a break I worry that they will not have A. heard about it and B. been able to sort of make any coverage plans. I know I'm not irreplaceable; I just don't want to burn bridges.

Snowflakes: My current employer may just say "you're done" the same day; that happens a lot. Also, I'd like to not "hang on" any more than what is polite; any time longer than 2-3 weeks to me just seems like drama. Morale at my current job is very low- we've been hemorrhaging employees for about 18 months. My new job would like me to start ASAP; I'm sure I can negotiate with them. Thanks in advance.
