As other said, just relax and wait a bit more. We can't make an
accurate estimation, this year the first day was a Saturday, last year
it was a Thursday. You will probably see the a difference of uploads
form a holiday to a work day (if is up or down it may vary from
community to community, but there will be a difference).
Also, you will see the upload progression is not linear, in my country
it accelerated hugely in the last week and the last night of the last
day was huge, the progression by week was like this:
I would say: make a conservative estimation and let the community
surprise you in a positive way :)
