WHAT DOES FESTIVE SEASON MEAN IN ENGLISH?

festive season

Christmas and holiday season

The Christmas season,[2][3] also called the holiday season (especially in the U.S. and Canada),[4][5] the festive season,[6] or simply the holidays, is an annually recurring period recognized in many Western and Western-influenced countries that is generally considered to run from late November to early January,[7][8][9] defined as incorporating at least Christmas and usually New Year, and sometimes various other holidays and festivals. It incorporates a period of shopping which comprises a peak season for the retail sector (the "Christmas (or holiday) shopping season"), and a period of sales at the end of the season (the "January sales"). Christmas window displays and Christmas tree lighting ceremonies when trees decorated with ornaments and light bulbs are illuminated, are traditions in many areas. Originally, the term "Christmas season" was considered synonymous with Christmastide,[10][11] a term itself derived from Yuletide, which runs from December 25 (Christmas Day) to January 6 (Epiphany), popularly known as the 12 Days of Christmas.
