Apple has sent an email to developers letting them know that iTunes Connect will be shut down for the holidays.

iTunes Connect will be temporarily shut down from Friday, December 21, 2012 to Friday, December 28, 2012, for the winter holidays. During this shutdown, the following functionality will be unavailable:
● Access to iTunes Connect
● Delivery of any apps or updates

Additionally, the following will be delayed:

Pricing changes scheduled to take effect during this date range will not be reflected on the App Store and your app or In-App Purchase will become unavailable for purchase until after the shutdown.

We also recommend that you do not schedule any apps to go live during the shutdown. Releases scheduled with a start date between Friday, December 21, 2012 and Friday, December 28, 2012 will not go live on the App Store until after the shutdown.

They're not shutting down iTunes just the app related part of it. ITunes connect. Apple employees need a holiday as well I guess. iTunes 11 will be out before then.
