Sounds to me like you're running into the end-of-year problem. At the end of the year, everyone wants to either push the hiring decisions into next year or hurry up and fill the position since if they don't, they'll lose the chance (budget constraints).

In December, I've had lots of problems with decisions getting made. Most of the time, even if they're at work, they're essentially already on vacation. And even if they're not, since half the office is on vacation, those that remain are pulling double or triple duty trying to cover the missing bodies.

The December phenomena is a problem not only with hiring/firing, but with virtually every long term decision.

So the answer is to just sit tight. Sometimes, you can politely ask for a time frame. Often, employers have come right out and told me that it's a December issue.
