1 holiday a month isn't going to send you flying back to the stone age. I say eat up as long as you're not competing in an upcoming event that you're required to weigh-in. Sure sodium and carbs will make you bounce up several pounds, but after a week or so of drinking adequate water and exercise, it will come right off.

Plus it will likely do wonders for your training to have a day of substantially increased calories. Hell, make a party out of it and go for your new 1RMs or other PRs. Do something with those additional calories.
