When a person goes on a holiday and they meet someone who lives in the area of the holiday location who shows them around and introduces to their friends. They would be romantic as well and sex would be their own choice...sometimes easier to make then when just home. The holidate is the actual person from there.

The person, of a romantic nature or not, that you take with you to mitigate the insanity of being near family during major cultural events that require a lot of gathering, eating and spending quality time together. Examples of such holidays include Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.
My holidate, Chris, and I will be playing the "racist and homophobic comments drinking game" when he comes home with me for Thanksgiving this year.

A holidate is the genius combination of a date (ie, getting to know a romantic partner) and a holiday (a short trip to another town)

Holidates are most appropriate (although this is not essential) when in a long distance relationship. The only real prerequisite is that neither partner lives in the holiday destination, giving an equal playing field to explore the new town together and get to know each other better without the preconception of one person playing host.

Althogh its typically an unspoken rule that there is the expectation of sex, the comparitively innocent holidate is not to be confused with the dirty weekend, which usually sees the couple staying in the hotel room for the entirety of the weekend.
Holidate is typically used just like date and holiday:

Jenny and I are going on a holidate down south for the long weekend.
