What do you think about UX writing of primary action? should be named as just Add or Add holidays. For me Add doesn't give clues to the user about what going to add.

I feel like it's always a better idea to give more context for buttons, unless you start putting paragraphs of text as their labels - they still need to stay scannable. Two to three words should be fine.

The argument in your case could be:

The label for the whole form is "Add holidays", so why would we duplicate the label on the button?

But if we consider that users would probably spend more than a second in this form, defining all the holidays, using a more context-aware label could be useful - less chance of users getting confused without any real downsides.

For more tips, check these articles:

P.S. On an unrelated note, I noticed that the inputs for the holiday are in the order Name - Date, but added values are the other way around: Date - Name. It's usually a good idea to use the same order in both cases - this way you'll lower the unnecessary cognitive load.

Giving more context is always better. It creates a consistent and lighter cognitive load if the main CTA and the page title are connected. Especially given there's enough space. I would suggest adding the count as well (how many holidays will be added) to give the user more confirmation.
