To add or subtract workdays days to a date so that you can calculate a date in the future or past that skips weekends (customized) and holidays , you can use the WORKDAY.INTL function. Holidays and weekend are both optional.
This formula adds 7 workdays days to Tuesday, Dec 22. Three holidays are supplied and weekends are set using 11 for the weekend argument, which means "Sunday only". The result is Wednesday, December 30, 2015.

The following table shows which dates are excluded with and without holidays provided (exluded dates are shaded gray). The final dates returned by WORKDAY are highlighted in yellow.
