I would wait until after the holidays. So sometime in early January. FI had a similar situation with his current job. He started part time in March and went full time with them in June (finishing teaching job at the same time). He interviewed though in early December, so he contacted them after the new year and just checked in, they said they would let him know by the following week and they did – obviously he got the job.

I think this time of year so many people are out of the office already or busy preparing to be for the holidays.

Have you sent your thank you email? I know some people prefer sending out physical thank you cards in the mail but I think an email is the simplest way to thank the interviewer for their time, mention some things you talked about during the interview, reiterate your interest in the position, and also ask about a timeline.
