Hi Simon. Welcome to Travelblog!

To the best of my knowledge there is no minimum stay away required before you can enter the U.S again - it seems to be almost entirely on a case by case basis, who you get at the border, etc. But the fact that you didn't overstay your visa waiver last time, have proof that you're only returning for a short trip over the holidays, rather than another extended stay, and are traveling with the British passport are all factors that work in your favor, so you are not automatically ineligible to return.

Best of luck!

- Stephanie

One more little point, have your return ticket ready for inspection...as the immigration officer will be more than happy to see that you have no intention to stay another 88 days! Reply to this
