HOLLIDAY CREEK (Kendall County). Holliday (Holiday) Creek rises six miles south of Comfort in western Kendall County (at 29°54' N, 98°54' W) and runs northeast for five miles to its mouth on the Guadalupe River, two miles southeast of Comfort (at 29°57' N, 98°52' W). It traverses an area of steep slopes and benches, surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses. The creek was probably named for John Holiday, who was the original grantee of land in the area.
