Hi,
It does sound like your holly has holly leaf blight - an infection caused by a fungus-like organism. Best way to deal with it is to remove all infected areas and to gather up and destroy all infected plant material, including what has already fallen on the ground. Where did you get it? You might want to contact the supplier/nursery to see if they had an outbreak and if plants were treated. Also, is it possible to post a photo of an affected leaf? Want to make sure I called this right!
