When (not?) to ask for a job.

I've prepared a speculative application for a job in Industry in the UK. It has been suggested to me that sending it now would be a mistake since we're heading into the Easter holidays. Is this good advice that I should follow or just a cynical opinion from someone who has nothing at stake?

I'm ready to send it tomorrow. I have put a good deal of energy into this because I would very much like to work for this particular company. The situation is complicated by the fact that there is no set closing date for applications but there is no specific job to apply for. I would not be competing with other applications, but I don't want to get lost in the shuffle of the upcoming holiday.
Should I send it tomorrow or wait? If the answer is "wait" how long should I give it?
