Hi

I was just wondering if both of these sound natural and whether they can be said interchangeably? I wanted to say that I am longing for the holiday.

"I can't wait until the holiday comes"

"I can't wait when the holiday comes"

Thanks

I see. Thank you for both of your replies.

I wonder how else would you express this idea?

Thanks again

I cannot wait for the holidays to begin.

I can't wait until the holidays.
I can't wait for the holidays (to come).
I can hardly wait for the holidays (to come).
I'm (just) dying for the holidays to come.
I'm (really) [eager / anxious] for the holidays (to come).
I've never been so [eager / anxious] for the holidays (to come).


Add to any of the above:
The anticipation is killing me!
I'm out of my mind with anticipation!
I'm beside myself with anticipation!
