What is Half-Christmas?

Typically, the majority of us cherish and long for holidays. Have you ever heard of the Half-Christmas holiday? It must be a novel notion for you, as it is for most of us. However, this may be the one for you if you enjoy the holidays. So let’s explore what this unique, fun, and unexpected Half Christmas holiday is all about.

The Origin of the Holiday

Comedy Central’s Workaholic featured this unusual holiday. The characters Blake (Blake Anderson), Adam (Adam DeVine), and Ders (Anders Holm) are responsible for the founding of this festival. Tired of their tight work schedules, these three closest friends requested time off to celebrate “Half Christmas.” 

The other employees joined them, and they all went on strike. Eventually, the authorities caved. Consequently, all employees received two paid holidays and a Half-Christmas celebration party.

Furthermore, some say it began as a method for people to mark the year’s halfway point and break up the monotony of summer. Others believe that college students found this holiday because they wanted a second Christmas celebration during the year.

When is Half Christmas Celebrated?

Half Christmas is celebrated on the 25th of June, exactly halfway through the year before Christmas, which falls every year on the 25th of December.

How is Half Christmas Celebrated?

Half-Christmas is a perfect opportunity to let loose and have some festive delight! You could organize a party with your friends and family and urge everyone to wear their tackiest Christmas sweaters. Why not make some keg nog to enjoy while singing your favorite Christmas carols? If daring, fire up the grill and have a BBQ on your rooftop. 

If you want to get into the holiday spirit, you could even play a special barbeque Yule log designed by the comedic trio Workaholics. Decorate your halls with holly boughs, decorate a Christmas tree, and bake some cookies. 

Then, unwind with a night of your favorite Christmas movies. Whether you appreciate classic classics such as “Miracle on 34th Street” or modern favorites such as “Home Alone,” there is something for everyone.
