Soit les vacances soit le travail

I wrote des vacances and du travail which was wrong, but I don’t know why. Can you explain since this error isn’t covered in this lesson explanation. I still have trouble with these articles. Thanks so much.

In these cases, les vacances means the general term, i.e., vacation in general. Des vacances refers to specific vacations.
