The Christmas season, the holiday season, or simply the holidays is an annual festive period that surrounds Christmas and various holidays. While we most often think about Christmas as a single day, it is actually a season of the year. In its popular sense, it extends four weeks before Christmas Day and for two weeks after. However, the time before Christmas is a special season called Advent, comprising the four Sundays before Christmas Day. Source: The Voice
Today is the first Sunday of Advent. We start to see Christmas commercials on tv and on publishing materials, and the streets start to gain decorations and luster. Christmas is already in the air as wind drifts and leaves fall, another season of cheers has began.
