iTunes Closing Down???

I have heard a lot of talk of iTunes "closing down" temporarily every year after Christmas. I was wondering if this is true and what it is all about.

iTunes Connect, which is what developers use to submit/launch/edit applications, will be down come Dec. 23rd through the holidays. The store as it is will remain unchanged. It just means nothing new will come out.

Yes. It's just saying that devs can't release updates and new titles on those days. You can still purchase, at least that is what I have heard thusfar.
