Formula to calculate days between 2 dates minus some exceptions

Hi i would like to know if it's possible for a formula to calculate the # of days between 2 dates with a couple exceptions.

Example count days between Jan 1st 2013 - Dec 31st 2013 minus christmas day(dec 25) , new years (dec 31st).....

Any workaround/idea would be appreciated.

thx

thanks and regards..

Hi cldave,

the following formula exceeds the 5000 limit, but maybe somebody else here has an idea how to reduce it:

CASE(MOD(Start__c - DATE(1985,6,24),7),
0 , CASE(MOD(End__c - Start__c ,7),1,2,2,3,3,4,4,5,5,5,6,5,1),
1 , CASE(MOD(End__c - Start__c ,7),1,2,2,3,3,4,4,4,5,4,6,5,1),
2 , CASE(MOD(End__c - Start__c ,7),1,2,2,3,3,3,4,3,5,4,6,5,1),
3 , CASE(MOD(End__c - Start__c ,7),1,2,2,2,3,2,4,3,5,4,6,5,1),
4 , CASE(MOD(End__c - Start__c ,7),1,1,2,1,3,2,4,3,5,4,6,5,1),
5 , CASE(MOD(End__c - Start__c ,7),1,0,2,1,3,2,4,3,5,4,6,5,0),
6 , CASE(MOD(End__c - Start__c ,7),1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4,5,5,6,5,0),
999)
+ (FLOOR((End__c - Start__c)/7)*5)
-
IF(NOT(OR(
MOD( Start__c - DATE (2000 ,1, 1) ,7)=0,
MOD( Start__c - DATE (2000 ,1, 1) ,7)=1)), 1, 0)

-
((
IF (AND(Start__c< Date(Year(End__c),01,01), End__c-Start__c>=(Date(Year(End__c),01,01)-Start__c)),1,0)
+IF(AND(Start__c< Date(Year(End__c),01,20), End__c-Start__c>=(Date(Year(End__c),01,20)-Start__c)),1,0)
+IF(AND(Start__c< Date(Year(End__c),02,17), End__c-Start__c>=(Date(Year(End__c),02,17)-Start__c)),1,0)
+IF(AND(Start__c< Date(Year(End__c),05,26), End__c-Start__c>=(Date(Year(End__c),05,26)-Start__c)),1,0)
+IF(AND(Start__c< Date(Year(End__c),06,04), End__c-Start__c>=(Date(Year(End__c),06,04)-Start__c)),1,0)
+IF(AND(Start__c< Date(Year(End__c),09,01), End__c-Start__c>=(Date(Year(End__c),09,01)-Start__c)),1,0)
+IF(AND(Start__c< Date(Year(End__c),11,27), End__c-Start__c>=(Date(Year(End__c),11,27)-Start__c)),1,0)
+IF(AND(Start__c< Date(Year(End__c),12,25), End__c-Start__c>=(Date(Year(End__c),12,25)-Start__c)),1,0))*if(((End__c-Start__c)/365)<1, 1, Floor((End__c-Start__c)/365)))

Hd037 as title says i would like a formula and ty agi for that formula, it gives me a place to start, hopefully someone knows how to reduce it :)
